Gas cap release on 2013 Outback freezing. Parked it in the SUBARU Dealer garage for 40 minutes and it freed up. Where does the cable run so I can hit it with a hair dryer or heater when it sticks?

The gas cap release cable runs from the floor, under the carpet, then across under the back seat to the gas cap.

The problem is usually that the release lever assembly rusts up due to ice and snow. A new assembly is about $40, and not difficult to replace: the carpet has to lifted to do it.

If your problem is the gas cap door not opening (ie not the release lever...) the door hinge needs lubricating. The best approach is to remove the door, apply some silicon-based lube to the hing and wiggle it till the hinge turns freely. Reinstall the gas cap door.

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.

Door won't open on the outside or inside after using a slim jim

you probably pulled the rod off of the handle lever. once you get into the truck. take off your inner door panel and re connect those rods. there should be 3 screws on the bottom of the inner door panel. remove those and then lift the panel up and out.

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 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.

Electrical wiring i think

First of all, when you replaced the timing belt did you replace the balance shaft belt also. Next have you checked the fluid level in the master cylinder? If the brake light doesn't come on when you apply the parking brake the switch might be bad. The bulb isn't bad because it comes on when you apply the brake. The turn signal bulb on the dash might be burned out. Is the hood release cable and the gas door cable handles right next to each other?

When doors are open dome light does not turn on

There are levers or switches inside the door jambs which are more than likely sticking.........try moving the levers and if this works shoot some lubrication on them and move them around a bit.
