Open fuel door on a 2002 fifi megane,cannot open fuel door to get to petrol cap


Not knowing exactly what a fifi megane looks like I'm assuming you are speaking of a locked fuel door, either electrically controlled or by cable. Most manufactures have an emergency pull cable tab in the trunk compartment directly under the fuel door for such purposes. Then go back and repair the original problem.

Gas tank lid will not open when switch is pushed.


Open trunk and pull cable in left rear side trunk panel. This is an emergency release for the fuel door. You may have to pull gently out on fuel door while tugging at release cable several times. When the door opens oil latch solenoid tip and bend tab on door latch about 2mm towards hinge.
The fuel door is flimsy and tends to get bent. Once it is bent it prevents the latch solenoid tip from releasing the door latch.

I have a 2009 Audi A4. All the doors are unlocked and the fuel door will not open. Is there a switch or another way to open the door? Could it be a fuse?


Pull the trunk wall lining back by the fuel filler. On my 99 A4 there is a red cable there - it's an emergency release that will pop the gas door open.

I have a latch on the driver side floor that opens the fuel door. It will not open what do I need to do so that I can get gas. Need help ASAP. It is a 2004 HYUNDAI ELANTRA 4 door Thanks Debra


Hello Debra,
I have seen cases in which the fuel door gets slightly bent and then the release does not release properly. You might be able to get away with having one person pull on the latch on the floor while another taps the gas door with their fist. Tap, do not excessively hit it with anything because it could cause damage to the paint or bend the gas door more. Once the gas door is open you will be able to see where or how it was stuck. Lots of times you can lightly pull up or push down to bend it to become aligned.

If that does not work your only other option would be to either pry the door open which can cause damage or take it to the mechanic. Sometimes there is a emergency release on specific cars for the gas door. (dont believe Hyundai has one on there car)

Good luck

I have a 1995 sl320 i can't get the gas door open. and when i unlock the car remotely the light flashes but the doors don't lock or unlock remotely.


Inside the trunk there is a emergency fuel door release you can pull that will open the door. After you get it open look at the post that the locking pin goes through when the door is closed. Shoot some lubricant spray in to the hole the pin come out from and that should loosen up the pin to slide smoothly.They get stuck with age.

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.

The fuel door release on 2003 Honda Accord is not working.


Open the trunk and pull back the drivers side liner inside of the trunk. You can follow the black cable to the fuel door. When you reach a black wing tipped connector you twist the 90 degrees and it will pop out and the door will open.
What was the original problem?

Gas Tank door stuck


Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.
