    I am trying to remove 2 electrical connections with clips to the brake booster assembly and don't want to damage them. It looks like they would open by squeezing the elongated ends and pulling but I can't get them to release.

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.

Fuel filter door on my 1998 Camry will not come open when the lever is pulled up.


Hello. The most common cause for your problem is a broken release spring.

Here is what you need to do:

Have a helper pull up the fuel door release. With a credit card, insert it between the door and the body, and pull the door open. When you get the door open, look at the hinged side. There will be a small metal tab. If it is there, bend it out. This is the release spring. If it is not there, you need to get a replacement from a Toyota Parts dept. They are about 2 dollars. Easy to install; slip the old one off, and click the new one in.

My lever wont open my gas door....help i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...


Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

I have a 1995 Ford Taurus. The fuel door will not open... I pull the lever and I can hear a click from inside the car, but the door stays firmly closed. Is there anything I can do myself to fix it? ...


You may need someone to help you. Have someone push in the cover while u pull on the lever.. Hold the lever and ask the person to try to open the fuel door. If you can get it open that way the spring on the door will need to be replaced.

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.

The gas tank door won't open with the lever, only if I put something under the lever after pulling it up I can pry open the door


More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.

Fuel door on my 1993 toyota camry won't open when I pull the leve


Get someone to help you. Have them pull up on the handle, whilst you pry open the door with a credit card, or something thin and plastic. Pull open the fuel door. Look to see if there is a bent piece of metal above the hinge. This is the "spring" that pops the fuel door open. If it is not there, it has broken, and needs to be replaced. About 3 dollars at a Toyota Dealer.

Cant find button for gas cap


You probably have a bad fuel door spring.

HAve someone help you; have them pull up on the fuel door release lever. Using a credit card, or something similar, insert the card at the side of the door that is closest to the rear of the car. Pull the door open with the card. When the door is open, look to see on the hinge side for a metal tab. This is the fuel door spring. If it is there, open the tab slightly. If it is not there, you can get one from a Toyota dealer for a couple of dollars; the old one snaps out, and the new one snaps in. Easy to change.

Fuel Door will not open


the cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.
