Question about 2008 Subaru Impreza Wrx
Gas tank door not open in my hyunday 2005 xg350L. Only open with the pull string inside the trunk. I push the button and nothing happen. Door not opened using the button in the driver door. Do I need to change the switch in the button, or what? What is the problem?
I am sorry I have no idea where they might be because I am not there to see where they feel into.

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

I had the same problem...brought it back to the dealership (had an extended warranty) and they just made an adjustment. No problems since!

SOURCE: 2009 forester gas tank door
I had the same issue with my 08 WRX I saw a metal tab came loose I put it back where i thought it went on the inside door of the gas tank. I only have 5000 miles on my WRX and I am experiencing this for the first time.
