Jammed Fuel Flap

Can't open fuel filler flap first make sure central locking is working correctly, if ok try applying slight pressure to flap as you unlock the car. If no luck go inside the boot and look just to the rear of the fuel filler cap many cars have an emergency release cable, if not you will need to remove the boot trim next to flap and carefully move your hand towards the fuel filler cap (you might not to be able to see the catch), where you will find the locking mechanism by pulling on the lever/rod/solenoid etc. You should be able to open the flap. See picture.
