SOURCE: 2001 audi tt -- trunk release and gas cap release don't work

Hi, yes there is. To release the trunk - look on the centre console, just rearward of the front seats and you will notice a separate rectangular section in the plastic, if you lift this out you will find a cable release for the trunk underneath. To open the fuel filler cap manually, look inside the car just behind the rear light on the same side as the fuel filler and you will notice a flap in the interior trim, which is to allow access to the rear lamp. Open this and then looking towards the top you should see a loop of orange plastic - pull this towards the rear of the car to release the fuel filler.
Hope that helps Matt..

SOURCE: gas cap door will not open when release latch is

There is a cable between the lever and the door release mechanism. Either that cable has come loose or is broken, you can gently open the door with a small screw driver by pushing on the release mechanism.

Gas cap release on 2013 Outback freezing. Parked it in the SUBARU Dealer garage for 40 minutes and it freed up. Where does the cable run so I can hit it with a hair dryer or heater when it sticks?

The gas cap release cable runs from the floor, under the carpet, then across under the back seat to the gas cap.

The problem is usually that the release lever assembly rusts up due to ice and snow. A new assembly is about $40, and not difficult to replace: the carpet has to lifted to do it.

If your problem is the gas cap door not opening (ie not the release lever...) the door hinge needs lubricating. The best approach is to remove the door, apply some silicon-based lube to the hing and wiggle it till the hinge turns freely. Reinstall the gas cap door.

2001 montero limited randomly wont start after setting a while starts fine

Check your gas cap and fuel pump. If you can start it after loosening the cap and putting it back on, your fuel pump is starting to die. It can't pull the gas out of the tank. When you release the cap, you let air in and release the vacuum in the tank.

My gas door is locked and won't open on my 2001

Inside the truck behind the trim is a manual release for the gas door, the release looks like the head of a large key on a small wire string. It is marked.

Where is the gas cap release for a 2004 bmw 325i

Push in on door and it will pop out. Make sure the car is unlocked when you do it. If your asking about the emergency actuator release for the door it is in the right side of the trunk. Pull on the green tab.

1999 Volvo S80 gas cap cover won't open when I unlock car!

Most likely the fuel door latch motor has failed. Pull down the trunk liner panel for that side by turning the knob next to the rear seat fold down 45 degrees. That will allow the panel to be pulled down. the latch is the small black box against the car body. It should have a manual release to get it open. Once open take out the two T25 torx screws and the motor will come out. Pay attention to how the manual release is routed and reassemble in reverse order.

hope this helps

Fuel cap and boot release buttons not working

I have a 2001 Audi TT Audi TT roadster, 87,000 miles. I love the car, but like all cars, things happen.

Open your checkbook, It is the command module , under your back glass, where the top goes , you will see a small door cut into the felt. Mine got wet and started a whole chain of events.

Seal that Window Good. 800$ repair to replace the comman module.

1. Windows were going up and down 1/4" all random times.
2. The Gas Release and Trunk Release buttons stop working
3. Alarm would go off at odd times.
4. Trunk would not open automatically.

To open the Trunk, behind the passenger seat is a small box, open it with you key and you will see the manual trunk release

To open your gas cap, on the passenger side of the trunk, you will see a small felt opening under the gas cap. Open it and pull back decently hard and the gas cap will open.

Good Luck.
