    Fuel Door Problem

    My Fuel door will not open when I pull the release. Someone has to pull the release while I put pressure on the fuel door to open it.

    I am thinking the spring has gone bad.

    Any suggestions?

    Check the latch/retention mechanism on the door. It could be misaligned or damaged or improperly installed. Was the car hit on that side?

    I have looked at the latch and it did seem a little bent...I tried changing its position but it did not solve the problem.

    There are a few minor scratches by my fuel door, kinda looks like someone was tring to siphon my gas (or so my buddy stated). Kinda makes sense with gas costing so much.
