  • Fuel filler door stuck! Manual release does not work.

    Has anyone pried the fuel filler door carefully open? Anything break if you do? Can it be closed again? Heard about a credit card method but not 100% sure. Thanks

    Just in case you were not aware, your fuel door locks with your doors.

    I did too, but other platforms and nothing specific to my question. Most where videos of the fuel release in the trunk.

    did not work, MQB is MQB applies to drive terrain and suspension etc, and not even that as mine is a 5CYL. A3,S3,RS3 have different fuel filler door design and/or actuator. Almost broke the door off trying to get it open.

    I need someone in here who has done it before on an A3-RS3 2017+.
