SOURCE: Broken spring on the gas fuel tank door on Toyota ''Camry'' 1998

Go to your nearest Toyota dealer. Purchase this part number: 77360-22020; approx 4 dollars.

Open the fuel door. Being careful, remove the leftover plastic that is hooked by the door hinge. Insert the new spring assembly under the slot, and press it in until it clicks into place. Very easy to do.
Hope this helps, and thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: Gas Tank door stuck

Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.

SOURCE: Gas tank door not opening

Hi there,
Have you looked in the trunk on the side that the gas tank is on? There may be a fuel release switch. Couple of other things to try is to unlock all your doors from the inside of your car and/ or try pushing in and out on the gas door over and over until, hopefully, it triggers the device. I hope that will help you. I will keep trying to find the answer. Let me know. Have a great night.~MWD

The gas tank door wont open for my 1994 Cadillac deville


Sounds like the door release actuator is sticking. Try lubricating the latch when the door is open. In addition to using the button on the dash, you should be able to open the door pulling the wire adjacent to the fuel door inside the trunk.

1999 seville sls gas lid will not open


Check your fuses. If you can't find a bad fuse, it could be a faulty solenoid that opens the door.

There should be a manual release in the trunk near the gas door.

Confusing dashboard symbols on 2007 DTS


The gas door flap may have a locking device that is wired to the central locking and keyless remote fob. Make sure all of the doors are unlocked and it should allow you to open the gas cap door.
