: Fuel Door

11-01-2007, 05:45 PM
I filled up my 2007 X5 today at the gas station, and when I went to close the fuel door, I noticed it would not shut all the way... I figured out that there is a small rod? that was still sticking out. I pushed it in manually, but not sure what it is?

Any experiences, or what to do if this happens again? Normal?

Thanks in advance-

Could it be the fuel door lock?

Did you have the door locks or alarm activated when you tried to close the fuel filler door?

That's what it was... I had locked my car while I went inside to pay... Didn't realize this feature existed...

Thanks -
