Question about 2003 Volkswagen Passat
Its quite likely that the solenoid that holds the flap shut has jammed. Its a fairly common problem (The same type of solenoid also operates the locking mechanism on the tailgate). It shouldnt be too difficult to access it from within the boot by stripping back some of the carpet/plastic trim in the boot area near fuel filler flap. Its a white plastic component with a wiring plug. if you lightly force it back it will probably unjam and start working prperly again (but for how long???). They are not too dear to buy and also fairly easy to replace.
