As a temporary solution you can normally force it open use something like a credit card (or credit card size piece of stiff plastic)

This forces it open without damaging the paintwork.

For a long term solution it will have to be dismantled to be cleaned up and greased etc

Sounds like the solenoid is defective, but the petrol cap can be opened by opening the boot and putting your hand down the side of the back panel (petrol cap side). You should be able to feel the solenoid and on the back there is a lever that can be pulled out which will release the petrol cap latch.

you will need to force the flap open. inside there will be a bar that pops out to lock the flap. this will come off with 2 screws and will need replaceing.

I have a Holden Barina Hatch 2012 model.


I think the system on that car enables you to open the petrol flap once the drivers door is unlocked (either by pulling the cap open or pressing on the flap).

1. Lock the car using the central locking.
2. Insert the key on the drivers door, turn it once and unlock it. Open the door to check you have unlocked it. Then turn the key in the lock again as if you were unlocking it a 2nd time.
3. Now open the petrol flap as the lock should have released.

WHEN TO CHANGE TIMING BELT ON RENAULT SCENIC GRAND DCI MODEL & DO THE PETROL MODELS HAVE TIMING BELTS OR A TIMING CHAIN?


The Renault schedule for timing belts on the Scenic is 72,000 miles or 5 years. This applies to both the petrol and DCI models as both have timing belts not chains.

However, please be aware that it is common knowledge in the trade not to let the interval go past 40,000 miles because these engines are renowned for snapping belts at any time after 40k resulting in serious engine damage.

Haynes (who are renowned for their service manuals on many models) recommend a maximum interval of 36,000 miles between belts on this model which is exactly half that of what Renault say!

This information from Haynes is backed up by experience and reports from the trade on the common and unfortunate experiences of customers experiencing belt breakage at 45 k and below.

Hope this helps. Please do leave a vote for the solution. Thanks.
