Re: Scenic Mk 1 52 plate - Locking Fuel cap motor

There is a manual release/lock for the flap.

See this for access.
Scenic MK1 Petrol Door locked

You'll see a couple of wires running behind the same area. A green and a white possibly.
They lead to a plug in the motor area but you can only just touch it with your finger tips.
Can't be 100% that they are the motor control wires and not just a sensing switch but if it was mine I would cut one and see if the motor stops.
It can be rejoined later.
Tape up both ends of wire just incase it touches anything.

Make sure the manual release works ok before chopping the wire.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
