      Having a CCM issue and I can't opening fuel flap with the switch on the door. How can I manually open this? I searched, but did not find a concrete answer. Thanks!

      my friend has a problem with his switch and it no longer opens the gas door. the only solution we found was to pry it open either with our finger or use a screw driver and a rag and extreme caution not to scratch the paint

      pull the side carpet off the passenger side and you should be able to manually pull the rod/acuator for the fuel door.

      My gas door doesn't work either, I just broke the clip that keeps it locked in. Now I never have to worry about it...lol
