You may find a release for the fuel filler door in the trunk. Look behind the carpet on the side the filler is on and at about the same level.

My gas flap is stuck closed. We had to pry it open yesterday to fill the tank. 2 months ago the same thing happened, but it has worked since then.


If you have fuel door release cable & door is open, verify that cable moves in & out when you activate it. If yes you can adjust tab that it rests on so it will release properly. Just bend tab slightly inward at first, till it releases correctly.

The gas tank release will not work


The first thing to do is spray penetrating oil on the hinges and behind the fuel door. Then, check the cable connection at the release handle. Ifc it has become disconnected, reconnect. The handle may be damaged and may have to be replaced. Also, you may be able to open the fuel door by pulling the cable using a pair of pliers, or by slipping a thin blade of some kind behind it to push the release latch in. If you can get the door open, put as much oil as possible on the release mechanism plunger, and then work it into the mechanism by depressing the plunger repeatedly. If you are able to get the door open, the connection at the release handle is good, and the plunger seems to move freely, the release cable may have stretched, seized or broken, and may need to be replaced.

89 Buick Park Ave with no power going to the fuel pump and no spark at the spark plugs.


Check your ignition switch - not the cylinder but the switch located under the dash on the steering column. You should hear an eletric click when you turn the key.

What is the means of opening the fuel tank door on a 2009 Subaru Forester?


i'm guessing you have a problem with the release cable?try slipping your credit card in between door and plunger that pops it open,the plunger is located at the rearmost centerof the door ,the door striker that rsts against plunger could just be out of adjustment,if you operate the release and see the plunger moving it's ok,adjust the striker a simple little tug towards the plunger is sometimes all it takes
