Question about 2000 Toyota RAV4
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.

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.
