2000 C2 Coupe 6-speed: fuel door actuator

Recommended Posts

Since I bought my car, the fuel door lock has never worked. Recently the lock has started making noise every time I lock the car. I don't know for sure where noise comes from, but I have noticed that the locking pin moves to the side and very little forward and does not catch the ring in door.

I may decide to replace the system one day, but for the moment I would just prefer to disable the system, so that I don't get the noise any more.

Any suggestions about how it can be done?

Phil, If you want to just kill the solenoid for the time being until you can replace it, just pull the plug on the unit or pull the fuse and cut the locking pin if it does not spring into locking position correctly. if the door locks correctly there is an emergency pull in front of the Rt door which you can use when you are fueling up. It is just a wire. But in Loren's DIY it looks plastic??

actually that little wire at the front of the right side door hinge is plastic and can tear off pretty easily. I found mine in the door jam and wondered what it was. solution is to make an emergency hook out of a coat hanger, bending so you can reach and hook the gas lock stem. pulling back should open the flap. you can keep the wire in the door pocket. I wouldn't want to do this on a regular basis. use the search engine, there's a posting, with pictures, about how to change out the gas lock mechanism. I think Loren might have posted it some time ago.

in the old 911's the trick was to carry a loop of strong fish line in the glove compartment. If the gas flap wire broke or jammed up you could open the outside flap by running the fish line over the locking hook and just pull it back. Flap would pop right up. That old flap had a cool orange sticker on the inside that said "achtung!" as a warning your gas flap was up. The flap was on the left side, in front of the driver. Couldn't miss it.
