ok, so here goes, i press the button on the dash & i can hear the cap "pop", but it doesn't unlock, so putting petrol in my car is a two person job, my wife presses the button whilst i'm at the cap pulling it open, any ideas on how to solve this??

Is it because it's -5 etc or is the wee spring that flips it out needing bended.Just guessing re the spring but there must be something.

Happened to me during the first 6 months of ownership.

I just greased up the release part of the flap - must have just got lucky because she's been fine ever since

EDIT: Re-reading back that sounds a wee bit rude but I hope you understand what I mean
