Petrol filler door won’t open

Recommended Posts

Hello, newbie here but after some help!

We have a 2016 Ford Galaxy Titanium. I went to fill up yesterday and the filler door won’t open. It’s a push and close door but when you push it won’t release and open meaning I cannot refuel.

I may be wrong but I don’t think it’s connected to the central locking system(?) and really don’t want to take it to a garage for what seems like such a simple fix!

Does anyone have any experience of this or can anyone suggest any way of solving this issue. My wife was due to give birth last Thursday and I really can’t be running out of petrol any time soon!

Thanks in advance,

Tom

Ah right, wasn’t aware. Thanks. Would you know if this would be a job for the garage or dealership to fix or could I do it myself?

Thanks
