SOURCE: Is there an emergency release for the fuel door on

You'll have to remove the trim on the inside of the car right behind the fuel tank in order to release it manually.

If you're lucky, the cable may have separated either at the fuel door, or at the lever and you may be able to run a new cable by threading it through the old one. Otherwise, you'll have to remove all the trim to trace the cable. You may also be lucky and that the cable runs under the bottom of your car

SOURCE: my 2005 Mazda MPV fuel

The latch is usually part of the fuel door and the cable assembly. The end of the cable clicks into part of the fuel door itself - so the name of the part is directly related to what part exacly is broken. The best thing to do is to see if the parts people at the dealer will come out and look at it so they know what part you need. (Yes, you will have to order this from the dealer. Fuel doors and fuel door release cables are rarely available in the aftermarket.

The service manual for this vehicle does not even mention anything about the fuel release cable, let alone HOW to replace it. It cannot be real hard because the labor manual lists the labor time required to replace it at 0.9 hours. You may have to remove a trim panel or two. It is a "Skill Level B" part. (with "C" being basic maintenance like oil changes and light repairs like tire replacements and "A" being major engine/transmission teardown and repair.)

    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.

    Fuel filter door on my 1998 Camry will not come open when the lever is pulled up.


    Hello. The most common cause for your problem is a broken release spring.

    Here is what you need to do:

    Have a helper pull up the fuel door release. With a credit card, insert it between the door and the body, and pull the door open. When you get the door open, look at the hinged side. There will be a small metal tab. If it is there, bend it out. This is the release spring. If it is not there, you need to get a replacement from a Toyota Parts dept. They are about 2 dollars. Easy to install; slip the old one off, and click the new one in.

    The lever won't open my gas tank. What can i do?


    read the manual. There should be a cable in the trunk you pull as a manual release. If not pull the trunk lining fabric back away from the fuel fill area. You should see how to manually open the gas filler door

    Fuel tank door release, 2004 Honda Civic


    The release cable is sticking or broken. To release the fuel door, open the trunk and pull off the fabric liner on the left side of the trunk. Behind this liner is the fuel door release cable; this cable leads to the fuel door and attaches with a twist-lock connector. It is cylindrical with two tabs. Twist the connector clockwise about 90 degrees and it should pull out, releasing the door.

    Just remember, the fuel door will not stay closed until you put the connector back in.

    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.

    97 Camry - trunk will not latch closed


    Sparay lock assy with lubricant, and look where release cable attaches to lock assy, and push/pry it one way or the other to get it to move, opposite of where it is. Lube cable too.
