Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Same problem. Thanks for previous excellent advice - gave me confidence to try to sort it out. To help future readers, I can add: my solenoid is black plastic and most of it can be seen by looking up from the removable cover in boot; the rod operating the release (or not!) seems to come out of the bottom of the solenoid; the lever to release the rod is directly above, with what feels like a 'walking stick' -shaped handle bending to the left as you put your index finger in - place index and next finger on solenoid and move them up as far as you can, then push up lever hard - in my case I sprayed with WD40 then pushed up hard and double-clicked key fob. Eureka!
Now flap opens and closes as normal, but will not lock,despite spraying more WD40 - who cares!
