Hi! Check the cable or the latch on the door to see if it is secured properly.
NB The cable is for opening purpose and the latch is for closing.

The fuel door won't fasten solenoid for activation working


Hi John,
These cars have a delay of about 10 minutes to lock the fuel door. The thinking is that you can get out, lock the car, go inside a gas station and pre-pay, then come back out and open the lid and fill up.

Basically, lock your car and walk away for 10 minutes, THEN check it.
It should unlock normally with your remote when you unlock the car.

If this doesn't work normally, then I seem to recall that the locking relay for the gas flap is RM1 in the fuse panel on the driver's side in the trunk. You might want to pull it out and put it back in, give it a light tap etc. Just make sure it's ok, or replace it.

Start with checking the delay first.

How do i open petrol cap on bmw 525 diesl


The petrol flap doesn't have a lever to open it like other cars but can be opened when the car is unlocked by pushing on one side of the flap to open, if this will not open then the fuel flap locking actuator is faulty and has not unlocked the fuel flap, if this has occurred open the boot and on the left hand side of the boot you will see a round button, if you cannot see this and you only see a hole then chances are the side cover has been off at some stage and the button hasn't been reinstated, if it is there, pull on it and it will pull the fuel flap locking actuator back allowing you to open the fuel flap.

Fuel flap stuck on my clio 55 plate


Get a flashlight so you can see where the catch is on the door. When you locate the mechanism you should be able to release it with a small screwdriver by depressing the locking tab.

Central locking problem. all doors except the passenger door at rear behind driver unlock this one is permantly locked any ideas


Put your ear close to the door and activate the lock/unlock. If you hear click click there is a loose/disconected lever which is moving without activating the lock. If you hear nothing something is stuck or dead. Open door panel and clean system then check again. Might need replacing the unit in the door.

Drivers door and fuel cap not locking with central locking have to lock door with key also fuel cap does not lock all other doors lock and open with central locking drivers door opens with central locking


Hello Alan,

I would suspect the fuel flap actuator has failed. Open the trunk. In the right rear corner is the access cover. Open it and you'll see some insulation matting near the top. Behind it is a fuse/relay carrier, I believe either fuse 55 or 56 is blown. If so the fuel flap actuator needs replaced. The fuse also controls the central locking system.

Bmw 320dse cant open fuel cap


If you are refering to the fuel flap this locks and unlocks with the central locking and they tend to jam. Go inside the boot and remove the carpet at the side of your fuel filler and you will se a cord, pull this and your flap will open.

I CAN'T GET MY GAS FLAP TO OPEN TO GET GAS.ANY SOLUTIONS?


I had the same problem with my 1999 Passat, whose power lock switch was also not working. It seems that when the mechanic fixed the power lock switch this also resolved the issue with the fuel flap.

Until I had this done, I had to do what goeffreyh above said, pull the upholstery in the trunk aside and pull back on the plastic tab to open the fuel door manually.
