    Exclamation GAS door release broken?

    Well I got my car back today from the body shop, they replaced the front-passenger side fender.... So I get out of school and I'm on empty, I pull up, pull the latch for the door it doesn't open. How do I get this door open? I went to the trunk and I see the wire but can't do anything with it... any suggestions?

    Bleh for some reason the door is no longer "spring-loaded" so to speak, nothing is pushing it out.... anything I can do about that ?

    you could put something under the release, then pop open the door with a credit card. and then go to the dealer or look at another and see what your missin. this happened on my camry a while ago, not too big of a deal, but a hassle trying to open it all the time
