Why wont my fuel door pop open?

There will be a small flat spring attached under a small screw ( rivet ) that presses on the base of the hinge when closed . They have a habit of breaking off and so the door will not pop open when activated . Have a friend activate the flap and at the same time press on the door near the hinge and it will open enough to get a finger under the door to open it. With a bit of luck the spring may be still in the caveity near the filler tube.

Fuel tank filler door RELEASE LEVER will not open the fuel tank door

Fuel tank doors can be operated electrically or by cable, you say 'release lever' so that points to a cable system, if they do not open, access to the flap can be gained by removing internal trim/carpet and manually operate the lock, check if the cable is connected to the back of the lever. Good luck

Where is the fuel door release button on a bmw 525d 2005? or is there one, jus have one for a few days and cant refill the fuel

Unlocking the front drivers door usually unlocks the fuel filler cap. With the front door unlocked, push the side of the fuel filler door in and it will open.

Let us know if that works.

To manuelly open 2003 Maxima gas filler door

I'm having this problem with my 2003 nissan maxima. I keep the driver side door open and keep my hand at the edge where the fuel door hinge is, and reache the button with a screwdriver or pen, and as it press the button, I push on the fuel door panel and it comes out. I'm going to replace the fuel door sooner or later. It all looks kinda dumb at the gas station.

Where is the gas lever on 94 golf

There is no lever for the fuel filler flap. It locks via the central lock of the car & is unlock when you unlock the car. There will be a finger access to pull the door open or push the door in & it will spring out.
The locking mechanism does fail to work & the door will be locked shut.
The owners manual has a description of what to do if the lock fails.
The hinge can seize up & be stiff to open.

Fuel filler door my Jaguar X (2002) will not unlock

Most cars have an emergency fuel filler door release somwhere in the trunk. Look for some kind of pull cord close to the area of the outside fill door.
