I had the same problem. My gas door wouldn't open when I pulled the lever. My boyfriend was just messing around with my car one day and he connected a medium-sized spring to the bolt on the lower right corner...below where the gas cap goes. Now the door opens automatically when the lever is pulled. Hope this helps.

The gas cap door on my 1999 rav4 won't open unless one person pulls the interior lever and another opens the door w their fingers


Often the door has to be pushed against a spring to close so when the release is pulled the door springs open a small distance

Designs that don't include a spring usually include a rubber buffer that must be compressed slightly to close the door. It isn't unusual for the rubber buffer to be left lying on a gas station forecourt though I have seen designs that include adjustable buffers that won't stay where they are adjusted to and need a spot of glue.

Gas cap door won't spring open. Thanks for any help...


there is a broken spring / missing spring at the door hinge
it requires 2 people to get it open
one to keep the button pressed or cable pulled and the other to use fingers or maybe a flat bar of some sort to force the flap open
if you have the time it may be accessible from inside the boot behind the trim where you can undo some screws to free the latch mechanism so that the flap catch can come free of the latch tongue
springs are cheap and easily fitted as they break on a regular basis.

I opened my gas cap and now it just wont close


The gas cap or the gas cover?

If the cap wont go back on then I don't know whats going on there.

If you mean the COVER or fuel door, then I would say your cable release is gummed up and sticking. Get some WD and spray the latching point on the car and then push the door in and let it spring back a couple times..spray again and repeat.....do this until the door stays shut. Then the next time you are getting an oil change get the station mechanic to spray the latch with some white lithium or other approved lubricant.

good luck and be careful.

I cant get the interior fuel compartment lever to release. Any ideas how to open the door so i can get to the gas cap, without tearing the door off.


have someone use something to pry it open while you pull on the lever it looks like the spring is broken or rusted off. in case you have a broken cable you can remove cable from inside trunk.

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

2004 Toyota Sienna power slide door won't open all the way


The suggested fix above did fix my problem. The problem is that a 2.5" hinged finger that pops up from the floor of the door opening to block the door. Apparently, the finger should, but doesnt go back down after the gas flap is closed. Even after I got hinged finger down (so that the sliding door would open/close all the way), it still would not go back down after the gas flap has been opened. i.e. I have to push the finger back down every time after we fill up with gas. It looks like there is a little wire/spring that should pull the finger back down, but it is off of the finger. I think that replacing this back on the finger should fix the problem permanently.

Cant find button for gas cap


You probably have a bad fuel door spring.

HAve someone help you; have them pull up on the fuel door release lever. Using a credit card, or something similar, insert the card at the side of the door that is closest to the rear of the car. Pull the door open with the card. When the door is open, look to see on the hinge side for a metal tab. This is the fuel door spring. If it is there, open the tab slightly. If it is not there, you can get one from a Toyota dealer for a couple of dollars; the old one snaps out, and the new one snaps in. Easy to change.
