SOURCE: 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.

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.

Gas door won't release


if it uses a cable, there is probably a plastic part either in the front where the release lever is of by the gas door. I dont think the 91 taurus uses electronic openers. If you can illicit the assistance of another, find the cable on one side of the problem(gas door vs release lever) pull the cable if you can observe it move in the front or back the cable is good and it is probably a small part that has failed. You may be able to find the assembly at a used part outfit. Let me know

Gas door won't open


FIRST: try using the gas release lever from inside the car with the driver side door closed. My 2006 Jetta gas release lever would only work if the driver door were shut and I pulled the release from the inside car interior. Turns out it was a severed door wire (NOT THE RELEASE CABLE). Thus when the door was open, it stretched the damaged wire and so none of the door controls worked unless the door was closed. ie windows, trunk release, and gas release. It was a $600 repair at the dealership, parts and labor! :(

I cant get the interior fuel compartment lever to release. Any ideas how to open the door so i can get to the gas cap, without tearing the door off.


have someone use something to pry it open while you pull on the lever it looks like the spring is broken or rusted off. in case you have a broken cable you can remove cable from inside trunk.

My lever wont open my gas door....help i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...


Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

Gas door wont open when pushing release lever, Trunk release works OK when pulling on same lever.How can I open Gas door without pushing on lever? What is the fix? Has enywone out there had this problem?


Try removing the plastic lever handle to see if it will let you push the lever further towards the floor resulting in more tension on the (hopefully not broken) cable.

Take a plastic knife like you would get at Wendy's (or anything you can think of that would work better) and wiggle it in the center of the right side of the fuel door. You're trying to depress a trigger and pop it open. Forcing can bend the inner latch but it can be bent back. After you get it open you'll need to do some adjusting or diagnose if the cable is broke. Even though it's the same lever, it's two cables.

The gas tank door won't open with the lever, only if I put something under the lever after pulling it up I can pry open the door


More than likely the metal spring on the inside of the gas door is broken where the plastic attaches. Have someone hold the fuel door lever in the release position while you gently use a flat head screw drive to open the door. The part should cost you less than $10 at Toyota.
