Tip

Fuel door manual release.


This tip is for 1997-2004 Corvettes:
This is something that will save you some hassle at a gas station if you ever have this problem. You probably already know there is a manual fuel door release cable you can pull if the push button in the console ever fails to open the fuel filler door. If not, it's under the carpet behind the driver's seat. Sounds easy enough, right? Well, while it's not exactly hard to do, in fact it's quite easy. On the other hand, if you are wearing a light colored shirt you are likely to get it dirty reaching under the carpet. The carpet isn't just lying there, the edges are covered by other trim pieces. If the switch ever fails to open the fuel filler door, you need to pull the carpet back and find the manual release cable to open the fuel filler door. This could be a problem if it's cold or raining, or as mentioned above, if you are not dressed for dusty work. One day while I was working in my garage, I decided to find my manual fuel door release cable since I had never actually seen it other than what I read in the owner's manual. I had to remove the inside liner of the driver's side rear storage compartment in order to be able to pull the carpet back and reveal the manual fuel door release cable. After finding it, I thought how much easier it would be to have an extension to that cable so if I ever needed to use this manual release I wouldn't need to remove two pieces of carpet. So what I did was attach a short piece of mono-filament fishing line to the cable, and just dropped the end in the driver's rear storage compartment. Then just replace the carpet and the liner to the rear storage compartment and forget about. This way if my switch ever fails to open the fuel filler door all I need to do is open the rear storage compartment door and give the line a tug to open the fuel filler door.

Where is the gas cap release button inside my 1991 Jaguar?


Hi,

Open your trunk lid and on the left hand side (the side of the fuel filler cap) there should be a label that says manual fuel door open. The switch is white and close to the top right by the fuel filler cap on the inside of the trunk. You may have to pull back the carpeting a little to find it as it might be tucked behind. Give it a pull and the fuel door should open.


Best of luck .

My Volvo S60 Fuel flap won't lock or unlock,


The pin solenoid that activates the remote locking is not receiving any electrical signal, it must have been unhooked. This solenoid is right by the filler door, inside the boot. The alarm activates on electrical differences, such as dome light, boot light or filler door electrical demand when it is activated. Hence, the alarm wont trip off if door is opened manually from the outside.

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 Filler Lid won't open


it sounds like you have a broken cable that connects from the inside of the car to the release of the gas tank. now the other release ( you said the book says is in the trunk on the lefthand-side ) it is probably under the lining of the trunk because most of them are not in plan sight for you to see.
