SOURCE: looking for info on how

Replace the main cable, but if that isn't easy to do right now, trace the cable to the door, and cut it and pull on the end with a vise grip to open.

There should be an auxiliary cable in the back somewhere to override a broken cable, if it's like a Cadillac, but there's no guarantee that there is one.

So, you have to replace the cable from the driver's side to the rear to get this working, I believe.

2008 Toyota Camry gas-cap door release is stuck; how do you release it?


Hi fellow,
Your problem has two options ;first, you have to inspect the interior wire that pulls the lock of the gas cap.If found cut you should replace it at the mechanic's. Secondly, once the wire remains uncut or undamaged by any reason, the lock itself might be jammed due to the rust or misuse. Therefore, you are advised to use some anti rust liquid it wil work. Good Luck.

How can i open my gas tank if my gas lever release 1993 lexus fell off


In a pinch use a coat hanger. Open the coat hanger so that it is one long piece of metal and cover one end with black tape to protect your paint. place it so that it hooks the tank cover. Push the button to open the tank cover while gently pulling on the coat hanger. Voila

I can't open the gas tank panel on a Dodge Charger


There is a fuel filler door release switch on the driver's side door in the map pocket. The fuel filler door will pop open when the switch is pressed. It is closed manually.

If this system is malfunctioning, a manual release is located in the trunk. Remove the access cover which is located on the left-side inner trim panel and pull the release cable. The fuel filler door will pop open.

I went to gas up and found that I couldn't open the gas tank door on my 2006 Subaru Forester. There is no dealership near and I am nearly out of gas. Is there a fix that I can do?


If there's no resistance when you pull on the release handle on the floor board, most likely your cable has broken.

If you can, try to pull the trim off the floorboard area and if you're lucky, it'll have separated from the lever and see if you can see the cable and pull on it directly.

Alternatively, you'll have to remove the trim on the inside of your car directly behind the fuel door to access the cable that would control the latch of the fuel door. Then you can force the latch to release from there. You may want to just remove the fuel door until you can reinstall a new cable as that will require you to remove a lot of your trim to run the cable.

If you're lucky and the cable broke right at the ends, you could tie the new cable to the old one and fish it through

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri


In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic


The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.
