Petrol Flap 2007 Old Shape Mondeo,wont Open???

Pretty simple one really!
My petrol/diesel filler flap will not spring open when using the pull lever at the side of the driver seat and I have to manually jerk it open to fill up, I guess this is a common problem? ...any pointers etc?

Or you can remove the side trim altogether (though you'll probably need to remove the tail light plastic cover to ease your job).
Apparently it's a common fault, remove the mech and grease then replace or use copious amounts of WD40 on it.
(Info pinched from TalkFord, but i have heard of this problem from the mechanics that maintain our work vehicles)

it seems the bit that retracts behind the flap is not quite going far enough when you pull the lever, I will do some science to it!
Thanks for the replies.
