Fuel filler flap - manual opening

Updated 7/23/2018

The fuel filler flap can be opened manually when electric opening from the passenger compartment is not possible.

  1. Open/remove the side hatch in the cargo area (same side as fuel filler flap) and locate the green cord with handle.
  2. Pull the cord gently straight back until the fuel filler flap folds out with a "click".


Pull the wire gently - minimal force is required to disengage the hatch lock.
