    Fuel Cap Not Opening

    Hi,

    Was at the fuel station wanting to fill up... but the fuel cap on my 09 A4 B8 doesnt open when i push it.
    Have tried pressing unlock/relock several times, nothing!

    Went home and tried it and it opened, tried again this morning and its not opening.

    I got the car from a Audi Dealer in July this year, would this be covered under warranty??
    Is this a known issue?

    Thanks!

    As long as its under 3 years old it will be covered.

    First i have heard of this, so dont worry to much. There is usually a manual release within the boot. Check your manual for more info.

    I had similar with mine, firstly problems with opening then it would not lock. It was fixed under warranty.

    Thanks.
    I have it booked in with the deal next week for this and the AC smell issue I was having.
    Hopefully they will sort them both out! (and I will get a nice courtesy car!)

    it could be just a dodgey/faulty mechanism causing the fuel cap not to open
