SOURCE: fuel door release latch not working

The small metal spring has broken on the hinged side of the fuel door. Easy to change, and costs very little from the dealership.

Try Super Heavy Duty Lock Tight and attach it to the fuel door. Make small hole to feed the end of spring into then glue it down tight.

SOURCE: Trunk latch pull down

You could try setting release to work manually. I have had the same problem. Take tne motor off set the catch clip at the right height. This should work with no cost.

SOURCE: 2003 toyota sequoia rear door latch broken

First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

SOURCE: gas cap door will not open when release latch is

You might try having a friend bump the gas cover with the heel of their hand while you **** briskly on the release. Have done this a couple of times and once opened, you can use a little lubricant on the exposed parts. Sometimes that is enough.

Gas tank lid will not open when switch is pushed.


Open trunk and pull cable in left rear side trunk panel. This is an emergency release for the fuel door. You may have to pull gently out on fuel door while tugging at release cable several times. When the door opens oil latch solenoid tip and bend tab on door latch about 2mm towards hinge.
The fuel door is flimsy and tends to get bent. Once it is bent it prevents the latch solenoid tip from releasing the door latch.

Cant open the latch to get gas into the car/. it is locked. how do you open the latch without ripping it off


What year and model is your car? Can you hear the gas door trying to release when you pull the lever or push the switch? A lot of cars have a manual release inside the trunk. Open up the trunk and pull back the carpet on the side of the fuel door to see if there's a release. It's usually just a cable with a little plastic handle. If you don't have one of these, you can get a really small screwdriver, put it in the fuel door and give it slight outward pressure while someone else is trying to release it from inside the car. When you do this, wrap a rag around the screwdriver to prevent damage to the paint.

Good Luck!

It can be fuse problem.Or it can be door latch problem.There should be a small pull tab inside trunk on the left side behind fuel door area.Pull this tab to open fuel door until the automatic open feature can be diagnosed and repaired.remove the material from the drivers side of the trunk around the area where the fuel door is located and you should find a method of manual release. A latch or possibly a pull cable.

Your door locks will not prevent your doors from closing, you should be able to lock the doors by hand and then close them with no problem. Take a look on the car where the door closes there will be a brass rod, this is your striker, it is what holds the door shut. This striker lines up with a latch in the door, the latch is on a spring and when the door is open it should be up, when the door closes the spring closes the latch around the striker. Check to make sure the latch is up, if it is not the door(when you try to close it) will typically bounce back toward you. If the latch is down you maybe able to take a flat head screw driver or prying device and twist the latch back up, this should allow your door to close. If you open the latch and it immediately closes it will need to be replaced. Hope this gets you on the right track.

My 04 Honda Civic fuel door will not open. Can


You can get to the latch through the trunk. In the trunk, pull the liner away from the area adjacent to the fuel door. You'll see a black cable that goes to the fuel door latch behind a metal frame. Reach in and turn the latch mount 90 degrees to release it from the fuel door frame. Your fuel door will now be open. You will need to repair or replace the cable, but at least you'll be able to fuel up for now.

Fuel door won't release open


The fuel door lock motor is in the rear wagon portion of the car.

The lock motors on these cars tend to seize up. Most customers opt to remove the plastic latch piece on the fuel door. This will prevent it from latching again as well.

If you can not find the fuel door release, you can work your hands behind the passengers side rear panel. You will feel for the lock motor, which is just aft of the fuel door itself. You should be able to pull it back to open the fuel door.


If you plan on fixing it, you will most likely need a new lock motor for the fuel door.

If by any chance the windows do not work, then the problem is the window switch as it also powers the fuel door lock motor.

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock


Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.

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.
