Re: Door to petrol tank stuck!

Hi, i got the same problem with my '08 clio, after reading on here, i found the easy fix was to remove wheel and cover above it, put my hand up the back and pushed in the 2 securing clips and pushed it down, this released the flap and allowed me to disconnect the locking mechanism from the solenoid.The flap obviously doesn't lock now so i can fit either a new solenoid or just as easy (and cheaper) a locking cap. I'm not bothering with either but i can fuel up and run car now, hope this helps someone in same position.
