Re: Urgent advice needed - fuel filler flap stuck? –
Yep - there is a metal peg which engages into a hole on the back of the filler flap when the car is locked (to prevent anyone from trying to syphon fuel out). Sounds like this is not disengaging when you unlock the car. As stated above, there should be a green cord behind the boot trim on the right hand side to manually disengage the peg.
