Fourtrak fuel door stuck


My Fourtrak's fuel door is stuck shut, and any attempt to turn the key just feels like the key is going to break and the lock is going nowhere.

I have tried squirting WD40 into the lock, with no success, and I'm scared of breaking the key. Is there anything else I can do?

I'm a bit girly with cars, but can follow simple instructions Wink

Thanks Smile

Hi and welcome


The fuel filler access flap lock is a tuppenyhaporth item, if after trying to release and no luck, stick a screw driver in the key entry and force it round. A similar locking mechanism should be available ( as fitted to many clothing lockers) at the larger DIY stores. The one I purchased just required swapping the locking bar for the original one.

Got in with a screwdriver - it looks like the spring-loading on the catch is broken - but at least I can fill the thing up now! Thanks for taking the time to help out Smile
