Question about 1995 Geo Prizm

Open Question

My 95 Prizm fuel door doesnt open, where can get the little V shaped metal piece that opens the door?

The V shaped metal piece that pops the fuel door open when the release latch is pulled. It fell off and now I have to open it using something wedged in the door. I don't know what the piece is called.

The car was parked in the sun, the release latch apparently thawed out and resumed working.

The doorlock has the ability not to unlock all the way after being locked. Take the door panel loose and you can access the locking mechanism. Push the mechanism all the way forward. This should solve the problem

E430 rear door panel removal


It is important to remove the screws first. There is one behind the SRS cover, one at the back by the latch and the plastic square piece comes off, one hidden behind the plastic cover at the handle to open the door and one at the bottom of the handle that you pull to close the door. Make sure there isn't a small courtesy lamp at the bottom of the panel. After all of the screws are out, take a plastic wedge and slide it between the panel and the door and twist it to pop the panel away from the door. Slide it around the door doing the same thing until it is just hanging from the top of the sill. You may have to use the wedge at the top to pry it up there as well. Don't pull it away too far because the line for the door latch is still attached and the window switch connector is still on. You will have enough room to pull the connector out and release the door latch line to the handle. I hope that helps you.

Honda civic hood latch


The metal loop on the hood is probably misaligned from the latch at the bottom. The loop should have a couple of bolts to loosen and adjust.

My 04 Honda Civic fuel door will not open. Can


You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull the liner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a black cable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach in and turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel door frame. Your fuel door will now be open. You will need to repair or replace the cable, but at least you'll be able to fuel up for now.

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock


Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.

Fuel door on my 1993 toyota camry won't open when I pull the leve


Get someone to help you. Have them pull up on the handle, whilst you pry open the door with a credit card, or something thin and plastic. Pull open the fuel door. Look to see if there is a bent piece of metal above the hinge. This is the "spring" that pops the fuel door open. If it is not there, it has broken, and needs to be replaced. About 3 dollars at a Toyota Dealer.

1999 Volvo S80 gas cap cover won't open when I unlock car!


Most likely the fuel door latch motor has failed. Pull down the trunk liner panel for that side by turning the knob next to the rear seat fold down 45 degrees. That will allow the panel to be pulled down. the latch is the small black box against the car body. It should have a manual release to get it open. Once open take out the two T25 torx screws and the motor will come out. Pay attention to how the manual release is routed and reassemble in reverse order.

hope this helps

Nissan Altima fuel filler release latch broke ... need alternate


Never heard of anything like that.  But those latches are not as secure as most think, just take a flathead screwdriver, put a piece of cloth around it to protect your paint, and pry the door open, just when you think it's about to break something...pop, it opens just like that.  I've done this quite a few times, only broke one so far.  :-P

Fuel filler release doesn't seem to work


Try this: Have someone pull the release cable. Using a small tool (credit card, plastic knife, anything); see if you can manually "pry" (for lack of a better term) the filler door open. If it DOES open, the fuel door "pop" spring is either broken or compressed to the point that it will not "pop" the door open. The spring is a flat piece of metal, bent into sorta of a "U" shape, and is located at the hinge side. Try this, and get back to me if you need more assistance. Hope this helps.
