SOURCE: Subaru Impreza gas cap door won't open

If there is one - In trunk - directly behind the gas filler door - behind trunkliner (carpet)
The cable should not have any problems... use a partner to hold the door release and try and pry it open with your fingers.
The spring popper may be bad.
Try this if you dont have an assistant :D

I had this problem with my STI -- easy to fix by bending the little metal on the inside of the fuel door that provides the spring action to open the door. 5 second fix

Gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


The actuator should be accessible from inside the trunk behind the trunk liner (just follow the wire). You should be able to remove the actuator and manually push the latch.

I cannot open the outside cap which gives access to the petrol tank; the normal and only way (it seems to me), being to push a button from the dashboard


Hi,
I have been attempting to download a Quattroporte owner's manual on line. Can't find one.
Try this out. Very often with automobiles that have a locking gas door. Inside the trunk there will be a wire cable that you can pull in an emergency. I have a locking door, over the gas cap in my car.
I have to push that the opposite end that the door opens and then the door opens. In other words. the user opens the door by pushing in from the opposite end from where it opens.because the door is perfectly flush with the car body.
Often cars have a lever to pull parallel to the lower door edge next to the driver.
Good Luck, Mark

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri


In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

Gas tank door not opening


Hi there,
Have you looked in the trunk on the side that the gas tank is on? There may be a fuel release switch. Couple of other things to try is to unlock all your doors from the inside of your car and/ or try pushing in and out on the gas door over and over until, hopefully, it triggers the device. I hope that will help you. I will keep trying to find the answer. Let me know. Have a great night.~MWD

Fuel Door will not open on Altima


Try having somebody pull on the gas door as you pull the release inside the car. The black clip you dropped may be a spring to push door open when release is pulled. If that does not work you will have to remove the plastic trim pannel inside the wheel well and unbolt gas door from the back side. That may be difficult if you've never done before. Good luck.

2005 Passat Opening gas tank


Yes, I'm sure the owner's manual shows how to do this. Usually one of the panels in the trunk. Take them off to check, but I would consult the manual first.
