SOURCE: Petrol Fuel Cap door won't open

I had the same problem. Pressing the fuel door unlock button did not work, and I couldn't find any emergency release in the cargo/trunk area. Eventually, I clicked the Lock / Unlock button on the key fob a couple of times and tried again, this time holding the fuel door release button for 1-2 seconds, and it worked. I then sprayed some door lock lubricant into the fuel door lock in case there was something sticking in the mechanism. Don't know if this truly "fixed" the problem, but it's working now.

SOURCE: S70 remote fuel filler flap not opening , Help needed urgently

My mechanic says this can be due to a brainshort on the part of the onboard computer; if the original driver's side doorlock switch goes on the fritz, it can confuse the computer and mess up the fuel door switch, trunk switch, and even the driver's door key switch (opening twice doesn't unlock the other car doors) - all of which happened on my car.

SOURCE: vw polo 2003. Fuel filler flap won't release when

There probably is. My 99 Audi A4 has a release cable in the trunk. It's behind the trunk lining above the filler neck. Mine's red for easy identification - just pull it and it pops the gas door. While it's open, spray the lock with some white lithium grease or PB Blaster, and work it in. It may be that the latch is just sticky and those should clear up its operation.

Hi im driving a corsa sxi+2006 and i cant get the flap open to get into my fule filler cap my central locking works for everything els just not the fule cap and im just about out of petrol please help me


I'd try to have someone help push the fuel flap, (cover) and you try to carefully pry open the cover. It may require multiple hard push on the button. Issue could be lubrication bent, misaligned catch, electrical button, or wiring connections. Possible vandalism. If you get it open, leave it open until you can get it fixed. Warranty? Google your problem, you may find others have same problem and have a "fix" for it.

How do I install a fuel pump on a 2000 ford Explorer


disconnect all fuel lines to the tank, vacuum hoses to tank and electrical connections at tank, fuel filler hose from gas cap. support the fuel tank and undo the tank straps then lower the fuel tank(it will be heavy). clean surface of tank from dirty then undo the locking ring that holds the tank unit to the tank and remove the unit. I think on this model of truck the complete unit gets changed not just the pump. assembly in reverse.

Bmw 320dse cant open fuel cap


If you are refering to the fuel flap this locks and unlocks with the central locking and they tend to jam. Go inside the boot and remove the carpet at the side of your fuel filler and you will se a cord, pull this and your flap will open.

    Locked trunk


    There should be a button on th dashboard to open the trunk. I would think the emergency release is for the fuel filler flap. Is the key going in the lock? maybe it just needs a squirt of wd40?

    The ford locks can be taken apart and made to fit any key, by rearranging the tumblers in the lock.
    Any decent garage would be able to do this for you.
