The cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.

    Unfortunately, I just pulled out the piece of metal that's the trunk release. Now I've got to go to the dealership. Didn't see a loop or emergency release cable.

This happened to me before. I fixed it by myself. To make it more easier for you, first you have to have somebody with you to pull out the fuel door while you're pulling up the lever. Then check the spring that pushes out the fuel door. The spring might be broken already.

Prius Toyota fuel lid is jammed.


Try pulling your seat belt down and around the lifted fuel door lever so that the belt holds the lever in the release position. You should then be able to gently pry the fuel door open with a credit card, or some thin plastic implement. Lubricate the hinge and spring with 3-in-1 oil, do NOT use WD-40 as it will dry out and your problem will reoccur.

I cant get the interior fuel compartment lever to release. Any ideas how to open the door so i can get to the gas cap, without tearing the door off.


have someone use something to pry it open while you pull on the lever it looks like the spring is broken or rusted off. in case you have a broken cable you can remove cable from inside trunk.

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The fuel door will not open... I pull the lever and I can hear a click from inside the car, but the door stays firmly closed. Is there anything I can do myself to fix it? ...


You may need someone to help you. Have someone push in the cover while u pull on the lever.. Hold the lever and ask the person to try to open the fuel door. If you can get it open that way the spring on the door will need to be replaced.

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.

Fuel door release latch not working


The small metal spring has broken on the hinged side of the fuel door. Easy to change, and costs very little from the dealership.
