The door to the fuel tank doesn't open when I pull the lever. How do I open it?


the door will not open probably because the spring at the door hinge is broken or missing
try removing the trim in the boot and you will see wherr the cable is for the lock mechanism, It is either screwed in but I am thinking that it will be held in by plastic clip../ Press the edges of the plastic together and push the mechanism into the fuel compartment. This will allow the catch to move around . have some one hold the lever up and use your fingers or a flat bladed screwdriver ( gently so as not to damage the paint) pry open the door. There should be a "z" shaped flat spring around the hinge that flips open the door when you pull the lever.
The part will be available from toyota only and if mitsubishi is any gauge around $3-$5.00

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.

My lever wont open my gas door....help i need gas.actually even the trunk lever wouldnt open the trunk.....finally the trunk lever i was able to pull up and then i couldnt ...


Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

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.

Cant find button for gas cap


You probably have a bad fuel door spring.

HAve someone help you; have them pull up on the fuel door release lever. Using a credit card, or something similar, insert the card at the side of the door that is closest to the rear of the car. Pull the door open with the card. When the door is open, look to see on the hinge side for a metal tab. This is the fuel door spring. If it is there, open the tab slightly. If it is not there, you can get one from a Toyota dealer for a couple of dollars; the old one snaps out, and the new one snaps in. Easy to change.

Fuel Door will not open


the cable from the lever to the door has broken. If you look inside the trunk, (sometimes you will have to pull the carpeted side down) right behind the gas door, you will find a short emergency release cable with a loop on the end - grab and pull the loop and your gas door should pop open.

Fuel filler release doesn't seem to work


Try this: Have someone pull the release cable. Using a small tool (credit card, plastic knife, anything); see if you can manually "pry" (for lack of a better term) the filler door open. If it DOES open, the fuel door "pop" spring is either broken or compressed to the point that it will not "pop" the door open. The spring is a flat piece of metal, bent into sorta of a "U" shape, and is located at the hinge side. Try this, and get back to me if you need more assistance. Hope this helps.
