Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Not seen at all on Mrs W's 55 plate modus, but there are a few posts here now, so I guess its becoming one

Having said that her car is very low milage so the flap has had little use
It would be interesting to pull a failed one apart and see what went wrong with it, its hard to imagine that its getting wet

Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Mine's in for a service in February, if you can hold your breath until then I'll tell you what they found.

The mechanism was very stiff when manually pushed so don't know if it's a mechanical alignment problem or a solenoid/electrical fault
Currently in Modus Touch's garage:

Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

If there is no manual release, easily accessible, which can open the flap when there is no electrical power, it seems to me a major conception flaw.

Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Thanks, I had read them before posting but this is not what I call "easily" accessible. Also I didn't find any mention of this emergency manual release in the users guide put perhaps I didn't look well enough?

As we are communicating, I see that you have a custom avatar. I haven't found a way of uploading mine. All I can do is select a generic one. Could I ask you how you uploaded yours, please?
