Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
The cause will be the cable that links the actuator to the flap is siezed.If you hook your fingers under the edge of the flap that pops up you can bend the flap (its plastic) so it clears the catch and it opens.it a fairly common problem.to replace it you need to remove several trims on the right hand side.Back panel ,lower c post upper c post and the rear headlining trim.they hook behind eachother so to remove one you have to remove another etc.hope this helps.Ocasionally the actuator itself fails so check it moves once the cable is disconected from it by operating fuel flap switch.cheers
