The outer door to the gas cap doesn't lock. You just press on the outer door and it clicks open. This is a problem, however, b/c there isn't a lockable gas cap available right now.

VW doesnt have the emergency release cable,may have to pry open,you will have to replace the cable. what you can also try sence you have the liner out is if you can see cable going to door is to twist to remove to open the door this way lock comes out, or pull on the cable going to lock ,pull near the lock this might also open it. hope this is helpful.

We lost the plastic "insert" in the gas cap area on our 2006 VW Jetta when we fueled up the first time and now it won't open when I pull the gascap release. Now what?


Hello.
You may have to buy a new plastic piece, and try and force the gas tank door open. Thats probably your only choice since that plastic piece is needed to get it open. Goodluck!
