The hood release is on the lower left edge of the dash, if your sitting in the drivers seat, lean down and feel the lower left edge of the dash with your left hand. You'll feel a small square plastic flap and pull straight back on it. You should then hear the hood release pop free.

If the fuse is okay, check to see that the latch is not bound in some way, and that it is properly lubricated. A dry latch sometimes will not release.

SOURCE: The hood will not release to open. I released the

So I gather that the release inside the car has release the hood's primary catch, but the T handle is not release the secondary catch to allow the hood to fully open.

If this is the case, take some lithium grease or WD-40 (lithium grease is much better and lasts much longer) and spray it onto the catch assembly.

Try pulling on the T handle some more after a few minutes of the grease soaking in and see of that releases.

If that doesn't work, then take a long flat screw driver and press it against the catch gently hit the screw driver with a hammer (you should be trying to push the catch towards the driver's side of the car)
You may need someone to be pulling on the T handle as you hit the catch with a hammer. I actually had to do this with a jetta before....

SOURCE: 2001 audi tt -- trunk release and gas cap release don't work

Hi, yes there is. To release the trunk - look on the centre console, just rearward of the front seats and you will notice a separate rectangular section in the plastic, if you lift this out you will find a cable release for the trunk underneath. To open the fuel filler cap manually, look inside the car just behind the rear light on the same side as the fuel filler and you will notice a flap in the interior trim, which is to allow access to the rear lamp. Open this and then looking towards the top you should see a loop of orange plastic - pull this towards the rear of the car to release the fuel filler.
Hope that helps Matt..

SOURCE: my lever wont open my gas door....help i

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.

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! :(

I went to gas up and found that I couldn't open the gas tank door on my 2006 Subaru Forester. There is no dealership near and I am nearly out of gas. Is there a fix that I can do?


If there's no resistance when you pull on the release handle on the floor board, most likely your cable has broken.

If you can, try to pull the trim off the floorboard area and if you're lucky, it'll have separated from the lever and see if you can see the cable and pull on it directly.

Alternatively, you'll have to remove the trim on the inside of your car directly behind the fuel door to access the cable that would control the latch of the fuel door. Then you can force the latch to release from there. You may want to just remove the fuel door until you can reinstall a new cable as that will require you to remove a lot of your trim to run the cable.

If you're lucky and the cable broke right at the ends, you could tie the new cable to the old one and fish it through

I can't get the door open to my gas tank. 2005 Honda Civic Hybri


In virtually all cars there is an emergency release mechanism located inside of the trunk. It's either a pull cord, or a means of twisting the release cable to remove the plunger from inside the fuel tank door. Look inside your trunk, pull back the liner if necessary, or feel around where the cable leads to the fuel tank door.

Once you diagnose the problem you will then know whether or not you will need to replace the release cable.

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.

Looks like a dead battery, mabey? key fob will not work, light is not blinking on dashboard (security) can not get inside. 2004 model, on-star is analog, so it is not active.


There is an emergency key for just this situation.

Use it to pry the keyhole cover off the left (driver's) side of the rear bumper. The pry point is at the bottom of the cover. Insert the key, unlock the trunk and lift it open, it's not too heavy.

Open the little door on the left side of the trunk, near the back. It has a gas pump on it. There are 2 tabs inside. One opens the gas cap. The other unlocks the drivers door. Now you can get into the driver's side of the cabin.

Below and forward of the button to release the hood on the left side of the steering wheel, is a manual hood release. Pull it and release the hood.

Now you should be able to open the hood and charge the battery to make everything work again.
