Cool fuel tank door wont open

Grand Espace 03.2002 (1999-2002) petrol F4R DP0

help, my petrol tank is geting near empty and the fuel tank cover door is stuck closed. It locks and unlocks with the sentral locking system.
Im sure i can hear the lock actuator move when I lock and unlock the doors but the tank cover remains locked.

there is supposedly a emergency opener inside the vehicle. A wire or string one can pull to unlock the cover.

does anybody know how to get the tank cover open?
Currently in jack daniels's garage:
2005 Grand Espace 2.0T auto and a couple of others
