Just press on the frontmost edge when the car is unlocked and it should open. Make sure you've unlocked the whole car (two presses of the unlock button or one long press) and not just the driver's door.

If you can't open the flap with all of the doors unlocked, then the solenoid has stuck (I've had this happen.)

The solenoid locking bar is made out of plastic, as is the filler flap. If you're careful about it, you can quite easily prize the locked flap open without damaging the paintwork.
