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!

Have someone do the lever as you put slight pressure on the door.. Then before closing, Ot some wax on thw latch and adjust if necessary. Sometimes the catch tang needs bendind a tad. Good Luck

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.

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! :(

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!

Open the trunk and behind the trim cover near the gas door only on the inside there is a cable pull there also. the owners manual will show you where it is it you have it.

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.

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 Door will not open


the cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.
