Fuel tank filler door RELEASE LEVER will not open the fuel tank door


Fuel tank doors can be operated electrically or by cable, you say 'release lever' so that points to a cable system, if they do not open, access to the flap can be gained by removing internal trim/carpet and manually operate the lock, check if the cable is connected to the back of the lever. Good luck

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.

My remote central locking system has failed (not battery in fob) and I cannot access my fuel tank. Can I manually release the tank cover without removing all the rear panelling? VW Passat Estate 05 plate.


vw doesnt have an emergency release handle that i know of,you will have to remove the panel and then twist the cable end where the head of the gas door lock is, as you twist it will pop out, unless its electric release then do the same except there no cable just the lock head and a connector. the release seloniod may be bad or stuck, or the door may be stuck.hope this helps,

I have a 1988 saab 9000 and the fuel tank door wont open and i cant find the manual release for it


I had the same thing happen. There is no manual release, which means you have to replace the fuse that is blown causing it to lock. It was the central lock fuse in my case. But as I was almost out of gas and at the gas station, I had to pry it open....Not the best thing but it worked.

    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.

    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.
