Re: Clio III fuel cap and flap - how to lock

Thanks for the tips...I had the same problem tonight - my "other half" phoned 'cos she couldn't get the flap open....
...after a few laughs, I got home and was embarrassed not to be able to open it either!

After 30 mins of locking / unlocking and pulling the flap 'til it almost snapped; I hit the interior locking button (by hazard button).....the flap flipped open.

Now full of fuel, it doesn't want to lock....have waited 20 mins but still no locking. Can hear lock 'clunking' when remote locking; but pin isn't moving.

WD'd it too.

How do you get to the solenoid to replace? unscrew cap surround from outside?
