Question about 2005 Volkswagen Golf

The fuel flap on my 2005 model VW Polo 1.6 classic seems to be stuck (one usually just presses the outside of it and it opens, but it will not budge). Any ideas?

The mechanism is bent or out of adjustment. I have opened these by (use something plastic so you don't harm the paint) prying the door toward the hinge side.

It seems you have a blocked fuel line from the tank to the pump, the fuel pump is cooled by the fuel flowing through it. Check if your fuel filter isn't blocked

chances are the spring that opens the flap is weak,just replace the spring.if it gets stuck shut pull away the carpet/trim from inside the trunk to get to the flap wire.

VW Polo Classic, fuel efficiency problem


Has the car been serviced recently?
If not I would suggest getting it done.Not sure if you have diesel or petrol, but oil can thicken causing more load on the motor and airfilters get blocked and can cause a rich fuel mixture.

If petrol you can take out the plugs to check if they are a light brown colour, if very dark or black you need to check and adjust carb/injection settings/filter.Need to know what engine it is really.

Soleniod pump


it sounds like its the air type which is the most common ones before about 1998 on vw. you can try to locate the pipes inside the boot compartment (which is where the pump should be as well) and then just plug it with a screw temporarily. i think the rubber boot on your fuel pump's solenoid is also bust so you are going to have to pull the lever inside the boot to open the fuel flap. i prefer to leave my fuel flap disconnected as you dont have to open all the doors of the car to open the fuel flap. hope this helps.
