Unhappy Gas door won't open??

Big problem. The gas door will not unlock with the doors. When I hit the locks, it makes a noise at the gas door but when you push on it, it's stuck. I've tried using the remote and unlocking with the key but it's still stuck.

Any ideas?

TIA!!

Pop the front trunk. In the case for the car jack there should be a small crow-bar. Use that.

Sorry. I don't have a real response. Nothing new for me.

Isn't there a cable near the door hinge for the manual release? Seems I've read that somewhere.....

Send a message via MSN to CJ_Boxster
yes there is, Open the passenger door and look inside the rear of the fender and theres a manual latch you can pull and itll open the lid.

You are correct, there is a little cable located just inside the passenger door well above the door hinge. Pull that cable and the gas cap will pop up. I had to do that to my '03 S but the cable did not retract. Anybody know how to make that little thing retract?
