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

On some models disconnecting the petrol flap solenoid may prevent the car from locking as it is part of the central locking ssystem - disconnect the wiring and see what happens.

The solenoids can become sticky after a while so it may be worth giving it a good drenching of WD40 or the like - nothing to lose.
