Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

Hi All,
I have tried all the keys and I cannot get the fuel filler flap to open. I have read the board for other makes that says they have a emergency release but I cannot find one on the modus. Any ideas anyone fuel os very low and I do not want to run out before then

Many thanks

Re: Modus Fuel Filler Flap will not open

I cant try this, because the wife car wont lock with the boot open, but....

open the hatch, remove the access panel on the right of the boot, and you'll see the rear light cluster.
Above that is the solenoid for the fuel flap, mounted vertically. If you feel your way down the solenoid, you can get your fingers onto the pin that drops into the flap from the top. If you can lift it enough, you might be able to open the flap
