Help with Scenic fuel flap

Hi guys,

I tried to post this in the Scenic forums but it wouldn't let me, so here i am. My scenic fuel flap has suddenly locked closed, and i've opened up the boot and opened the panel in the rear offside corner with the picture of a petrol pump on it.

As far as i'm aware, this is where the emergency flap release should be but there's no sign of it, even feeling inside the hole. Not sure what i should be looking for so wanted to ask before i pull out something vital. I'm really low on fuel so if anyone has an answer, please don't be shy!

Re: Help with Scenic fuel flap

Hi, i have a 2002 scenic. On mine, I had to take out the light cluster on the drivers side, then from the outside, remove some padding and the manual release should be mounted on the inside of where the flap is.
Hope this helps.
