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

99 vw beetle no power to door locks, trunk switch, or gas door not even with remote any suggestions?


the remote switch you are looking for is the fuel door switch that controls all these items trunk,unlock fuel tank door. this unit has to be replaced as a whole unit but check all your fuses first on driver side dash where door touches dash left side open door look for a triangle shape panel pop it open and check (ALL) fuses and especially #17 brown 7.5 amp fuse top right of fuse block.

Emergency latch for gas cap 2000 VW Beetle, where is it?


From the manual:
  • Open the rear lid.
  • Open the cover on the backside of the luggage compartment. To open the cover, turn the two "quick-releases" and fold the cover down.
  • Reach through the opening by the fuel filler flap. Grab the cable with th plastic covering and pull down. The filler flap will open by itself.
Best of luck!
