SOURCE: fuel door won't open

ok check the sliding door on the side the fuel door is on. there is a safety mech. there the door needs to be closed all the way. if its not you can't open the fuel door. so slam that door then find out where and how it keeps the fuel door from opening. because if you open the door with the fuel door open it may damage fuel door

SOURCE: fuel door release brokern

If it is a lever it should be a cable. A button would be electric.
There may be an emergency release inside the trunk near the door.
It depends on what is damaged how it needs to be repaired.

Does it lock or unlock with the switch inside? When you try the keyless do you hear any noises from inside the door?

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.

What steps do I have to take to replace the (sliding hide away door that covers the drink holder). This sliding hide away door is between the driver and the passenger seats on my 2005 Acura TL


I don't believe this part is available aftermarket, only from Acura. Part # 77230-SEP-A02ZA $93.17. It isn't hard to replace. First you pry up left and right chrome side trims on the console. Start at the back, they are held on with clips, be gentle but firm, don't flex the trim. A plastic trim tool helps. Once you've done 1, they are easy. Then it is just screws holding the rear section, slide both seats all the way forward to help lift out console. Go to Acura E Parts to see an exploded view.

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.

Where is the fuel pump locted on a 99 acura tl


HI. First, you will need to remove the filler cap. This will release the pressure in the tank. Once this is done, simply, remove the rear seat. This will expose the fuel pump access panel.The access panel will be secured by three screws. Remove the screws to lift the access panel. Once the panel is lifted, the pump will be accessible.

2003 toyota sienna lift door knob broken. how to open the ldoor


The handle that broke had a little 'finger' that actuated the release mechanism. The only way to open the back hatch is to remove the inner panel and push on the release mechanism.

Once off, you can either a) buy a replacement handle (expensive) or b) do what I did and simply make a piece of L-shaped metal to lever the release mechanism from the outside.

If your handle is completely off of the door you can look up under the little plastic cover (that hides the handle) and see the slot on the right side that the release handle inserts into. You need to stick the lever into that slot, and angle it down about 30 degrees from horizontal to get under the latch mechanism, which unlocks the hatch if you pry it upwards.
