Remote Fuel Door Release

Recommended Posts

When I depress the remote on my 2007 ES350 to open the fuel door the door does not spring open. I can hear the clicking sound of the button so I know its working. It seems the door has lost its tension at the clip which pushes the door open.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution? Thanks for the feedback.

Your probably right, the actuator is releasing but the spring tension is not there for some reason. Just use your warranty at your local dealer.

I had the exact same issue. My gas cap was attached with a plastic strap-like connector. I had to take that off. It was tangling behind the gas tank cover and wouldn't allow the cover to pop open on it's own. Have never had another problem.
