Question about 2007 Honda CR-V

1 Answer

My fuel cap release in my 2007 Honda CRV does not work - lifting the lever does not release the fuel cap cover. Is their an alternative way to open the fuel cap cover without using the release under the dashboard?

    Thanks for the response, but unfortunately access inside the CRV is behind solid interior side casings and is not accessible through any compartment. After further research and contact with Honda service departments, I was instructed to use a credit card or screwdriver to jimmy the fuel cap cover open from the outside and then bring the vehicle in and have the release and fuel cap repaired. (Obviously Honda should consider an accessible inside release)



    I appreciate your response to my inquiry.

You should have a pull strap in the boot area level with the cap out side, you may have to open a compartment to access it

How do i open fuel cap to put fuel in bentley continental


you will probably find that the small spring at the hinge to open the door when the release is activated has broken
try with the help of a friend activating the release to open the door manually
otherwise you may have to go in through the boot, remove trim and undo the latch bolts to allow the latch to let the door open

My CRV engine bonnet cannot open.


The cable has probably stretched. Try having someone pull the lever, while another person pulls up on the hood. Then remember to release the second locking lever under the hood as you pull it up..

I need to open the bonnet of a 2004 Honda crv sports. I cannot get inside the car as I was in the process of replacing a flat battery and the car was locked when the bonnet was accidentally closed. So, no...


May have to get a battery powered sawzall and cut the latch that keeps the bonnet closed with a metal cutting blade. Then, go to a salvage yard and replace that part.

Good luck on this repair.

Try pushing down on the hood while someone else pulls the lever to open the hood. Then lift up and release latch as usual.
Could be broken spring in latch.

2007 Honda Civic fuel door will not open, my son needs to get gas and the fuel door will not open, what is he to do?


You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull theliner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a blackcable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach inand turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel doorframe. Your fuel door will now be open.

For a fix, look at this low cost solution: http://www.instructables.com/id/Fix-Broken-Fuel-Door-Cable-on-Honda-Civic-82170/

I tried it over the weekend. It works great.

Gas cap door will not open when release latch is


You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

2002 santa fe can't release fuel door/cover


There should be an adjustment point on this cable at either end. Adjust to make the cable shorter and this should solve your problem.
