Hi,

Any advice welcomed. My centrally locked fuel filler cap is still locked even though the doors are and boot unlock.

Is there an easy way to get it open and then lubricate the mechanism?

Thanks.

Some of them have a manual release behind the trim.

It's a common fault with these, the motor fails, it's behind the carpet in the boot on the drivers side, use a multimeter to see if you're getting any voltage to it when you press your door release (twice) iif you are it's the motor, if not its the fuse.

Sometimes you can wiggle it loose if the motor hasn't entirely failed by activating the door release whilst you press the fuel flap/cover.
