With the boot open put your hand in through the gap for the roof mechanism as shown.

there is a bit of carpet covering a access hole in the bodywork.

I've stuck my phone in and tried to take a photo of what your feeling for.

please excuse the drawing I'm trying to illustrate it has more of a lug on top this is what I pulled to release the fuel cap.

Hope this helps, and my pictures work.

PS I still haven't tried to make it lock again its not a major problem where my car is normally parked.

Thank you soooooo much for the post and especially for the pics! I've just prayed I could get home to find something like this. I knew I could count on you guys to have solved the problem.

I'm not sure if my will lock again either but I don't really care to be honest I would rather be able to put fuel in when I really need to than worry if someone is stealing some. I've sprayed it with WD40 so it should be fine for a while. A point I might add though is mine has been playing up for a while but always eventually opening till now. I noticed the last time I used wd on it it wouldn't lock for a bit but it then went back to normal so maybe at first it's too slippy to lock.

Cheers your a star!!! I'm off to fill up
