Near side sliding door won't unlock

I suspect that the reason that the near side sliding door won't unlock remotely is something to do with the gizmo that prevents the door from being opened while the vehicle is being refuelled, effectively acting like a guillotine and chopping the fuel pipe in two.

My question:

How does the simple act of unlocking / locking the Kangoo's fuel cap causes the nearside rear door to lock / unlock? I can't see any electrical connections so it's probably something fiendishly clever.

I've had a look behind the door card and applied gallons of WD40 to the various actuators and connections but to no avail.

This is irritating!!

(PS. I have searched and read the many related posts but can't find the answer to this question.)

Currently in chiefkeefe's garage:
Mitsubishi 'i', a Honda Jazz SE Sport, a Honda SH300i scooter, and an MZ TS 250/1 Supa 5. Used to own a Kangoo 1.5dCi
