Hi well this will depend on what type of cap it is...there are a few different types, you have the standard type, just push and turn anti clockwise, the key locked type, put key in, hold the outside of the cap turn the key anticlockwise, and then you have the basic one, just turn anticlockwise ...hope this helps

SOURCE: Petrol Fuel Cap door won't open

I had the same problem. Pressing the fuel door unlock button did not work, and I couldn't find any emergency release in the cargo/trunk area. Eventually, I clicked the Lock / Unlock button on the key fob a couple of times and tried again, this time holding the fuel door release button for 1-2 seconds, and it worked. I then sprayed some door lock lubricant into the fuel door lock in case there was something sticking in the mechanism. Don't know if this truly "fixed" the problem, but it's working now.

Hoe to open petrol cap


Some vehices have a latch on the door that covers the petrol cap. It is usually opened by using a lever that is on the floor by the drivers left hand, possible under the dash, anywhere that if you don't know where it is, it will be hard to find, and obvious one you have done so.
Once the door is open, the actual cap is removed by twisting counter clockwise.

The guide tube for the release cable has crumbled and loosing tension for the cable. Only way is pry it open using a spatula covered in some kind of tape so it won't ruin your paint.

Petrol filler flap stuck in locked position


Sounds like the solenoid is defective, but the petrol cap can be opened by opening the boot and putting your hand down the side of the back panel (petrol cap side). You should be able to feel the solenoid and on the back there is a lever that can be pulled out which will release the petrol cap latch.

My central locking stopped working and i cant get my petrol cap housing open to put petrol in to get it fixed! any ideas? any way of unlocking it manually? i have an audi a3 2001


On some cars you can unlock the door twice and this will release the petrol cap - otherwise you could check for a loose conection somewhere in the fuse box.
