Renault Scenic I - Petrol Filler Cap wont open


When the central locking unlocks, I can hear the locking motor of the petrol filler lid working, however the lid is still locked.

How can I fix this?

Re: Renault Scenic I - Petrol Filler Cap wont open

In my car (not a Renault) I have an emergency access flap in the boot area just behind where the fuel filler cap would be. I can stretch my hand in to where the motor is and move the connecting pushrod myself so the cap is free to open or be secured closed.
My central locking packed up years ago but I've never bothered to fix it.

Don't take without giving in return
