I'm afraid that there is no emergency release for the fuel door. You can go to any garage and ask for help. It won't take much time or money. You can try to open it with screwdriver, but you can damage the paintwork while doing so.

SOURCE: Emergency fuel door release for 2000 Volvo S80

Copied from Volvo Forums


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.

How do I open stuck fuel door on 1998 lincoln mrk 8


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

Gas tank lid will not open when switch is pushed.


Open trunk and pull cable in left rear side trunk panel. This is an emergency release for the fuel door. You may have to pull gently out on fuel door while tugging at release cable several times. When the door opens oil latch solenoid tip and bend tab on door latch about 2mm towards hinge.
The fuel door is flimsy and tends to get bent. Once it is bent it prevents the latch solenoid tip from releasing the door latch.

The fuel door in my car would not open had to pop it open how do i fix it so the button will work again


usually they are opened via cable. you'll have to trace the cable and replace it, if it's broke. Sometimes you just need to lubricate the lever where you activate the door.

2008 EOS fuel door wont open


There should be an emergency release option inside your trunk. It will either be in very close proximity to the fuel door, or the cable that leads to the fuel door release will allow you to turn the adapter where it goes through the metal into the fuel door.

2002 santa fe can't release fuel door/cover


There should be an adjustment point on this cable at either end. Adjust to make the cable shorter and this should solve your problem.

The car was parked in the sun, the release latch apparently thawed out and resumed working.

The fuel door release on 2003 Honda Accord is not working.


Open the trunk and pull back the drivers side liner inside of the trunk. You can follow the black cable to the fuel door. When you reach a black wing tipped connector you twist the 90 degrees and it will pop out and the door will open.
What was the original problem?
