I can't say I'm sure on this but almost all vehicles that have locking fuel doors have a release cable inside the trunk near where the door is located. May be behind the trunk liner material in that general area. If you have your owners manual it should have a description of the fuel door operation in it somewhere along with how to open it should the normal system fail. Good luck and hope this helps!

How to open 2008 Porsche Cayenne gas tank


If you mean the fuel door... if it is not unlocking make sure the key is on and pull the fuel door button on the driver's side door. Button should be next to the rear hatch button. If it is not releasing check your fuses. If you need fast access remove the carpeted side panel inside of the rear hatch and you will find an emergency release.

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.

If your fuel tank release has failed, go into trunk/boot and pull back liner on side (fuel filler side) and you will find a cable made for emergency access to fuel filler.

Gas tank door will not open when i press the button


The quick solution until you get it fixed is use the emergency fuel door release in the trunk through the circle access hole. You must pull the cable down not towards you. and you must use much more force than you would expect.

The actual problem can be any one of these...
cable, solenoid, actuator, switch, cable plugged into switch.

Gas Tank door stuck


Try having a second person pull on the door as you press the button, and also listen by the door to see if you can hear the release latch working. Also, open your trunk, and on the same side as your gas tank will be a little pull handle as an emergency release for your fuel door. It may be behind the trunk liner, but usualy they are easily accessable. and if you have any other problems, refer to the owner's manual to locate the release.
