does anyone have issues with their fuel door not opening?
mine was giving me a hard time then decided to stop working.
When i wash my tuck i wash the inside of the fuel door, so i'm thinking i might have washed some lubrication on the part that springs the door open? :dunno:
i can get it open with a plastic pry tool but it has to go in to get fixed just wondering if this is a common issue.
Thanks.

X7 fuel door latch

Had this problem on first fuel up. Specific spot to press is on crease about 1 inch in from back of fuel door. It is a rotating latch that requires at least a 1/2 inch movement, more like one inch. Rotates 90 degrees each time you fully depress!

Fuel Door info

My fuel door on our 2019 is very balky. My dealer told me that there is a fix but it is about six hours and this is a common complaint. I will have it done on my next service as it is a pain.
