SOURCE: 2001 accord pushed the lever down but it won't

If it's a lever beside the driver's seat it work's by a cable that run's all the way to the back where the door is.It has either came unhooked at either end or the cable broke.Pop the truck and look behind the carpet in the area of the gas access door ,sometimes there is a secondary cable or you might see the main cable/latch and might be able to open it from there.Hope this help's.

SOURCE: Gas door wont open when pushing release lever

If you could use some plastic knife to try and pop out the
fuel door, the next thing to do is spray some lubricant (WD40)
on fuel door-lever linkages, including the tang. If you get some lubricant inside the controlling cables too, that would be great!

SOURCE: 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).

My trunk will not close


There is a possibility that the remote latch cable is stuck (lubrication is gone) . With a screwdriver, NOT the fingers, try to return manually the latch, to its open position (instead of the pull open position). If you push it too far, it will go into locked position, and when you pull down the trunk lid, it wont reach its normal closed position. In that case, pull the latch back open, with the remote lever. Should you manage to close the trunk properly, spray some WD40 or some lubricant on the latch assembly.

I can't manage to open the petrol cap Is it to do with the central locking??


If its the lid cap)
just pull the gas tank lever,, and stick a flat head in the grrove where the locking cap is.. Pull the cap lever and pry with the screw driver at the same time.. It will pop open.. Chances are someone pushed the cap tohard inside and it locked in..

If its the cap on the petrol,, (UNDER THE LID),, spray around it with sime silicon oil or WD40,, (rust remover or a degreaser) let it sit for a few minuts then turn it off with a piece of cloth.. Push Down, pull up,, push down turn, pull up turn.. The rocking motion will loosen it..

1972 corvette stingray, driver side door does not open fron either inside or outside.


Sounds like the door latch mechanism is worn out.

The door latch mechanism for your door is operated by rods, from the inside door handle, and the outside door handle.
It is highly unlikely, (Though not impossible), that all those two rods have fallen off. (Spring clips hold the rods in place. Opening Rod Control Clip. In the link below they are shown as Item E)

With the window all the way down, carefully use a long flat tip screwdriver, to push down on the lever for the door latch mechanism, to open the door. Make sure the lever for the door lock, in the door latch mechanism, is in the fully unlock position.

This link may help show you the inner door hardware, I'm referring to above,

http://www.mamotorworks.com/corvette-c3-door-hardware+1968+1982-inner-1-106-9491.html

You can see that when you pull out on the inner door handle, it pulls a rod forward. This rod is attached to a Bellcrank. The Bellcrank in turn pulls down on another rod, which pulls down on a small lever in the door latch mechanism, to release the door latch.

When you push down on the outside door handle, it pushes a small rod that is attached to that same lever as the inner door handle. Looking down through the window opening in the door, it is that lever that you're trying to push down, to open the door.

Viewing down through the window opening, try to operate the outside door latch a little. Watch to see what lever it tries to move. That's the lever you have to move Down, with the flat tip screwdriver.

With the door open, it is a matter to check out,

1.The Inside Door Opening Control, (The inside door handle is attached to it), to see if the locking part of it is functioning correctly. Make sure that it goes to the full Unlocked position.

2.The Door Latch Mechanism. Make sure it is functioning correctly. It, along with the various door hardware parts inside the door, needs to be lubricated at specific intervals. The more it's used, the higher the interval rate goes up. (I find that owners seem to Skip this task a lot! I use Lubriplate White Lithium spray)

To replace the door latch mechanism, I suggest you buy a manual for your car, so you can view all of the door hardware to remove, to remove the door panel. Then view how the spring clips come off of the rods, and the three screws come out of the door latch mechanism.
