re: Stuck fuel cap door **Fixed**

Ok I don't have a Clio but it seems to be a common problem on my Scenic.

Is there any way you can get your hand inside the trim in the boot / rear compartment. One of the inspection hatches to reach the mechanism near the fuel cap. On my Scenic the solenoid seems to operate ok but the whole mechanism is loose inside the bodywork so it doesn't unlock properly. I can reach it by hand easily and slide it open.

It was hard getting over my addiction to the Hokey Cokey, but I've turned myself around and that's what it's all about.
Currently in twodogs's garage:
2011 Grand Scenic III 1.5dci EDC; Royal Enfield 350 Bullet; Boxes of tools and spare parts I will never need again.
