Volvo 1994 850 wagon. The gas cap door will not open when the car is unlocked. Is there a way to manually release the door so we can put gas in? Any repair ideas?


Inside the cargo area just about where the door is on the outside there is a manual release. It is a little plastic handle on a tiny metal cable.

1995 volvo 850 I need to fuel up and I cant find how to open gas door


Should be a button or lever either under the left side of your seat, or by your light knob. push button or pull lever, if door does not open then you have either a broken/stretched cable (if you have a pull lever type release) or most likely a frozen (as in not moving, not literally) gas door lock. Hope this helps!

My Volvo S70 has a gas tank lid that locks when closed. There is a release on the driver's door. Yesterday when I tried to use the release on the driver's door to open the gas tank lid the gas tank lid...


HI,
Is this a lever or button you pull or push? If it's a button than it must be electric and there is likely a fuse somewehre in the link for both trunk and gas lid that may be under the dash, by the engine, or somwhere else.

If it's a lever than it's likely a cable that runs back to them...but not sure how BOTH would be 'broken'. Does the lever feel 'different' as in loose or less tension than in the past?

Unable to open hood of Volvo


I have a '95 and the lever is beside the drivers left leg. You pull this lever and then go out and lift up the hood about an inch. A second lever shows out the front grill. You pull this second lever to release the safety catch so you can open it the rest of the way.

Where is switch located to open the fuel door?


Hi Midwin4U,

I had the same question when I got my 94' 850 Turbo wagon. I kept wondering where the fuel door release was. To my surprise there was not one, you simply must have the entire "CAR" (not just the drivers door) unlocked. Use the key FOB. After that, go to the fuel door outside the vehicle and push in on it to pop it open. Hopefully you have not run out of gas yet.

When i closed my gas door it locked, how do i open it?


There will be a release inside your car. I'm not positive where it might be, but the most common place for a volvo seems to be somewhere on the passenger door. If it's not there it may be on the dash, below the driver's seat, center console.

Volvo 850 - Headlights/Brakelights


Hi Metzgerism!

No tools are needed to do such replacements, as both head- and brake-lights are accessible by simply removing panels/caps that cover them. For the headights there are caps that can be twisted and removed, while for the brakelights you need to carefully pry open a panel on the rear post.

Good luck!
