if it clicks when pushing button the lock is disengaging try providing a little pressure on door and have someone push the button it will probably spring open. the struts might not have enough power to pop it open
Solenoid that opens the door catch You can push the button & have a volt meter on the solenoid wire,to see if you have power to the solenoid That will pretty much confirm the problem & test the entire circuit with one test or check
In trunk on left side there should be a manual pull cable to operate the door if the electrical solenoid fails to operate when pushing the fuel door button on the left side of the dash near the trunk lid button.
I assume it has a push button for the fuel door. If so then look at the latch that the fuel door grabs on to see if it is broken or stuck on open. If stuck push on it a couple of times and spay it with penetrating oil to loosen. There is other possibilities but let's start there for now. I hope this is helpful.
Question is whether the cable/unlatch device is operating, or if the spring that pushes the fuel door open is out-of-position or broken. Have someone else operate the button while you have a fingernail or non-scratching inplement ready to gently pry the door open. If the door does not open, there may be a problem with the cable/unlatch device. If you can get the door to open by hand when the button is operated, you may have a broken or displaced sping, which will be apparent once the door is open. I fixed this issue on our '92 Sidekick by installing a small spring from an old flashlight, set up so as to push gently on the door near the hinge point, while wrapped around the original support bracket. Best luck!
First open glove box and look in the left top corner and you should see a black valet button. Press this then see if the fuel door release works then. If you still need the replacement get the part number from your local Lincoln or Ford dealer
If there's no fuel door button inside the car (passenger door, center console, driver's door, etc) then you may just be able to push on the actual fuel door. Push on the front edge of the fuel door and it should swing open. I know a lot of Volkswagens are like this and since they're the same company, the door should open the same
