Question Renault Modus Fuel door will not open

I have a Renault Modus, registered 07. The fuel door (on the offside behind the passenger door will not open. Have tried ignition key with engine running, doors locked, open etc. Would like any information on how to remedy this problem. Have thought of using sledgehammer but on second thoughts perhaps not!
Many thanks to all.

Re: Renault Modus Fuel door will not open

The locking solenoid for the fuel door will either be behind the boot liner or behind the plastic wheel arch liner. You'll need to gain access to release it. Once removed sometimes a good drenching of WD40 or the like helps.
