Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic

I have a 2004 Honda Civic EX 4-door. When I press the fuel tank door release lever (located on the floor, to the left of the drivers' seat), the fuel tank door on the outside of the vehicle does not open.

Any ideas?

The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

As stated in previous solutions the cable needs to be repaired or replaced. The temporary solution is to go through the trunk to release the cable.

Where located the gas filter


Most modern vehicles do not not have an inline filter. The filter is built into the fuel pump that is in the gas tank. It not designed to replaced as regular maintenance.
If you think the engine is starving for fuel you need to have a competent mechanic check the fuel pressure at the injection system.

2004 honda civic fuel door release not working. How to fix?


You can either replace the cables for $ 68.00 plus labor (fuel door release cable and trunk release cable are one in the same), or you can purchase a plastic cable assembly from www.fueldoorfix.com for $19.95 CAN (free shipping). Replaced one last week on a 2001 Honda Civic, and it worked like a charm. They have a short video clip showing how simple the fix really is, and it was rather simple.

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri


In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.
