    Fuel flap won't unlock

    My central locking pump has stopped working and I won't have my replacement until later in the week but I need to refuel the car.

    Is there a release for the fuel flap? I've had a look and can't see one anywhere, the flap is locked and I can't get it to unlock due to the pump.

    Or will I have to use my manual release which is a hammer and chisel.

    Any help appreciated.

    If you open the trim on the righthand side in side the boot you will find there is a plastic manual release cable inside that opens the flap its buried in there so you will have to dig for it but its defo there and a better option than a hammer and chisel lol

    Always wondered what that release cable was for.
