Hello all, my petrol flap has stopped working and there doesn't seem to be a fuse for it in the manual. I can here a clicking from the dash so I'm presuming it's a relay problem. Anyone know which one and where it is?, Thanks

Mine did this last week, it was the mechanism sized up rather than anything electrical.

Have you got the flap open yet? There's a red pull cord in the boot, should be poked through the carpet but might be in behind if you can't see it. Cord needs pulling pretty firmly to manually open the flap, then work the piston a few times, I hit it with some dry PTFE lube too.

Ha ha, found the string of doom. Mechanism seems ok, gave it a clean and a good once over. Definitely something clicking under the dash
