Question about 2002 Volvo V70
FUEL DOOR WILL NOT OPEN. HOW DO YOU GET IT OPEN.
If it is the solenoid (most likely) remove the right rear break light cover and the inner cover behind it.
There is another adjoining cover over the fuel tube. There are two plastic clips holding it to the car. Twist them clockwise and release the plastic fuzzy sound cover. I was not able to take this cover out, but you need to manipulate it so you can get your hand behind it and reach up and towards the fuel cover. There is a wire pair (mine was covered in foam) which attaches to the rear of the solenoid. The solenoid is positioned horizontally. Find where the wires are attached and reach around to the front. There you should find the plunger and pull it back towards the rear of the car. This should release the fuel cover lock. It did for me. Good luck!

I had a similar problem w recently bought 2003 S80.Several points: 1) Access your locking selonoid through the trunk interior panel ... loosen a few hex bolts and slide out for maintenance; 2) I fixed my lock by simply using light teflon-based oil (like for bike chains). I exercised it a few times and it works beautifully; 3) Not sure on your model, but gas door on the '03 unlocks when you push the associated release button under the headlight control switch. It is not designed to unlock w the key (again, check owners manual for your year). Hope this helps. master_pre08-04-2007, 09:35 AMYeah, the fuel door on my 2000 S80 is connected with the door locks. In order for it to open you have to unlock all the doors to the car. Sssnake08-14-2007, 03:39 PM Thanks Guys,
I removed the locking mechanism and applied a little silicon graphite and now it works like a charm.
