megane 1 fuel flap

The flap wont lock. Any ideas?
It seem a lot of people have the problem of a flap that won't unlock but I can't find any info on flaps that won't lock

Re: megane 1 fuel flap

The solenoid motor on the locking cap mechanism can fail open as well as closed so you'll need to check it isn't seized, broken or it's wring is faulty.

The only way to find out is by removing it to check.

Re: megane 1 fuel flap

There is a post somewhere on here, do a search, summat like fuel flap / locking noise. If it was noisy, that's an indication of imminent failure IIRC.

Give a n00b the answer he will be learn for a day; show him the search button, he will learn for life.
