    hello here you go there is a big problem with the cable system please go to the dealer and have it replaced.

    Take out the access cover in the trunk for the passenger side tail light assembly, and yank on the cord that goes to the gas cap. The cable has gotten lose and it isn't pulling the release trigger, this is a pretty common occurance for most of these cars. I did this to my 2002 and its been ok for the past 2 years now. Thank you Lee

    Check at back of your trunk then look for the cable that is directly connected to tha tank. Pull the cable to open the lid.

The location of the fuel door release


Hi Shelia that should unlock when you unlock the doors. Press the unlock button twice. If that's not working open the boot and under the carpet at the side the cap is on there is an emergency release for the fuel cap. They are usually clearly marked or a bright coloured cable. Regards Jim...

There is another release in the right rear passenger side of the trunk. A little WD-40 on the latch will help.

How do i open fuel cap to put fuel in bentley continental


you will probably find that the small spring at the hinge to open the door when the release is activated has broken
try with the help of a friend activating the release to open the door manually
otherwise you may have to go in through the boot, remove trim and undo the latch bolts to allow the latch to let the door open

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..

Fuel cap and boot release buttons not working


Hello,
I have a 2001 Audi TT Audi TT roadster, 87,000 miles. I love the car, but like all cars, things happen.

Open your checkbook, It is the command module , under your back glass, where the top goes , you will see a small door cut into the felt. Mine got wet and started a whole chain of events.

Seal that Window Good. 800$ repair to replace the comman module.

1. Windows were going up and down 1/4" all random times.
2. The Gas Release and Trunk Release buttons stop working
3. Alarm would go off at odd times.
4. Trunk would not open automatically.

To open the Trunk, behind the passenger seat is a small box, open it with you key and you will see the manual trunk release

To open your gas cap, on the passenger side of the trunk, you will see a small felt opening under the gas cap. Open it and pull back decently hard and the gas cap will open.

Good Luck.

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.

Fuel cap release


There is no release button. You have to unlock you car ( unlock using the remote ) and then push the fuel tank lid to open.
