How can the gas tank door be manually opened - 2000 Saturn L-Series

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018

Answers :

Some cars have a release in the trunk for the gas tank door, not sure if the Saturn does though. It would be located near the door in the trunk. Is the release inside the car not working? If not, get a pair of vise grips and clamp them on the cable behind the pull or release and manually pull it, as it may have stretched out, and that could be why it's not working.

My Volvo S70 has a gas tank lid that locks when closed. There is a release on the driver's door. Yesterday when I tried to use the release on the driver's door to open the gas tank lid the gas tank lid did not open. Above the release for the gas tank lid there is a release for the trunk.
