Talking Renault Megane 1 - Fuel Flap Stuck Shut

I cannot open the flap covering the fuel cap. I have tried anti freeze as it is -5 tonight and then got home a tried wd40.

I am very low on fuel and starting work at 6am tomorrow. Will ring RAC if cannot be solved

Thanks Lance

Re: Jammed Flap to Fuel Cap!!

Hello and welcome to the forum.

If you remove the interior trim in the boot you should be able to access the central locking impactor that locks the flap,just undo the screws holding it in place and remove it,then the flap should open.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
