HELP! My Fuel Filler Lid Lock won't release - and I'm at less than a 1/4 tank of gas left.
The control is a little lever next to the driver's seat which also controls the trunk lid release when pulled or opens the gas tank lid when pushed. The trunk opens just fine but the gas tank lid won't pop open. I don't think there was an impact to the area to cause it to jam. And I can HEAR the cables making noise inside there when I push down on the lever, but nothing opens.
I (THINK) I found where the cable runs back thru the body panel in the trunk and gave a gentle tug to make sure it wasn't disconnected - and the cable is still attached to whatever it's supposed to be attached to.
Is this an easy fix for me once the cable is revealed - or should I take it into the shop?
Would the assembly diagram be in a Chilton Manual? I have no fear if I need to disassemble panels and dig into the guts of stuff to replace or reattach something if that's all it takes for me to fix it - but I don't want to make problems worse if it's a potentially delicate type of diagnostic and repair.
Please advise - my little car gets good fuel economy, but I don't want to push it til I'm running on fumes - haha!
