Fuel filler release

any body know what can cause the fuel release button to fail.

a couple of times press the button and nothing then I have to open the boot pull the string to fill up.

Is it on a solenoid or is it mechanical

Don't want to take it all the way to Mangos.
Any quick fixes like a squirt of wd somewere.

Re: Fuel filler release

Is it making a sound when you press the button?

The problem may be a physical one at the latch, rather than electrical (i.e. the system is working but the flap is "jammed").

Re: Fuel filler release

Thanks Ralf thinking about it it could be the silly stringy bit getting caught in the flap. That's tech speak

Also if the button has been pressed abit hard it can push the switch out of the clip at the rear.

Re: Fuel filler release

The catch might need lubricating?
