I had the same problem. Pressing the fuel door unlock button did not work, and I couldn't find any emergency release in the cargo/trunk area. Eventually, I clicked the Lock / Unlock button on the key fob a couple of times and tried again, this time holding the fuel door release button for 1-2 seconds, and it worked. I then sprayed some door lock lubricant into the fuel door lock in case there was something sticking in the mechanism. Don't know if this truly "fixed" the problem, but it's working now.

    yes funnily enough, by locking and unlocking both doors it did seem to release the flap, however i have a long journey coming up and am really worried I will get stuck being unable to refill. Have you had any further problems since doing this?

    I haven't had this problem since loading up the latch with a lot of grease once I got it open. Adding some more grease about once a year appears to help.

Where is the fuel door release button on a bmw 525d 2005? or is there one, jus have one for a few days and cant refill the fuel


Unlocking the front drivers door usually unlocks the fuel filler cap. With the front door unlocked, push the side of the fuel filler door in and it will open.

Let us know if that works.

Where is the gas cap release button inside my 1991 Jaguar?


Hi,

Open your trunk lid and on the left hand side (the side of the fuel filler cap) there should be a label that says manual fuel door open. The switch is white and close to the top right by the fuel filler cap on the inside of the trunk. You may have to pull back the carpeting a little to find it as it might be tucked behind. Give it a pull and the fuel door should open.


Best of luck .

Petrol filler flap stuck in locked position


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.

Hello, I'm not sure if you are talking about the lid that you have to open to get to the fuel filler cap or the cap itself. If it's the fuel filler cap that you are talking about, you will need to take a pair of channel locks or equivalent and grab the two metal pieces that are about 3/8" wide, hold the cap with one hand and turn the pliers with the other until it snaps back on top of the ex centric.
If it's the actual lid that won't open, it is a vacuum problem. You can try to leave the car running, then work your locking system back and forth with the key in the drivers door. That should get the trunk unlocked. If you can get the trunk open, look to the upper right in your trunk and should see a round pull knob, pull it and your lid will open.
I hope this helps.
