    Check owners manual, it may tell of another cable in behind panel near lid in interior of vehicle. Have someone pull handle while another taps or pushes slightly on it.

Fuel tank filler door RELEASE LEVER will not open the fuel tank door


Fuel tank doors can be operated electrically or by cable, you say 'release lever' so that points to a cable system, if they do not open, access to the flap can be gained by removing internal trim/carpet and manually operate the lock, check if the cable is connected to the back of the lever. Good luck

I can't open the gas tank panel on a Dodge Charger


There is a fuel filler door release switch on the driver's side door in the map pocket. The fuel filler door will pop open when the switch is pressed. It is closed manually.

If this system is malfunctioning, a manual release is located in the trunk. Remove the access cover which is located on the left-side inner trim panel and pull the release cable. The fuel filler door will pop open.

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 .

2001 audi tt -- trunk release and gas cap release don't work


Hi, yes there is. To release the trunk - look on the centre console, just rearward of the front seats and you will notice a separate rectangular section in the plastic, if you lift this out you will find a cable release for the trunk underneath. To open the fuel filler cap manually, look inside the car just behind the rear light on the same side as the fuel filler and you will notice a flap in the interior trim, which is to allow access to the rear lamp. Open this and then looking towards the top you should see a loop of orange plastic - pull this towards the rear of the car to release the fuel filler.
Hope that helps Matt..

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.

Emergency latch for gas cap 2000 VW Beetle, where is it?


From the manual:
  • Open the rear lid.
  • Open the cover on the backside of the luggage compartment. To open the cover, turn the two "quick-releases" and fold the cover down.
  • Reach through the opening by the fuel filler flap. Grab the cable with th plastic covering and pull down. The filler flap will open by itself.
Best of luck!

Fuel Filler Lid won't open


it sounds like you have a broken cable that connects from the inside of the car to the release of the gas tank. now the other release ( you said the book says is in the trunk on the lefthand-side ) it is probably under the lining of the trunk because most of them are not in plan sight for you to see.
