Read the manual. There should be a cable in the trunk you pull as a manual release. If not pull the trunk lining fabric back away from the fuel fill area. You should see how to manually open the gas filler door

Hatch won't open


Hi,
The car doesn't have a remote release lever on the driver's side floor in front of the driver's seat- where the gas door lever might be too?

Try pushing DOWN on the hatch while either turning the key or moving the lever.

Look in the Owner's Manual (or download one online).

I have a Toyota Camry 2005. I cannot open the open the trunk using the inside lever. However, I can open the open the trunk using my key


release lever either has a cable or an electric switch- usually cable- is pain to change but fairly cheap- buy a HAYES repair book- read first before buying parts- lot cheaper to keep using key- if i remember correctly cable runs underneath floor under car to rear an up over gas tank- like i said =pain to change

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

The gas tank door won't open with the lever, only if I put something under the lever after pulling it up I can pry open the door


More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.
