    Planned to try that when I get dressed. Was wondering if there could be an electrical issue, ie individually fused or just a mechanical solution? Thanks for your prompt reply

Little tab/catch sticking out to hold it shut, spray well with WD-40 or similar & keep trying it, that may do it.

    You should be able to hear a clicking noise when button pushed, at the filler area, that would indicate power is o.k. Usually only power needed to open (pull tab back) then spring loaded button, snaps back out when button released. Watch button at filler to see if it pulls back when button pushed in vehicle. That's a good time to hit it with spray, when it's retracted.

How do i manually release the fuel door ? ( the dash remote release just stopped working )

The cable is accessed from the boot! No manual release but by removing the boot trim behind the petrol flap you will be able to reach the cable and pull on it to release the flap....probably just needs the cable lubricating with WD40!
