2012 Fuel Filler Door Release - Won't
Fairly new to forum - have been skulking around for the last five months since purchasing my 2012 Tinted Bronze LE AWD MO. Today, stopped for refueling and the fuel filler door release wouldn't work. Tried several times before moving out of the filling line. Called dealer who instructed me there was a manual bypass in the trunk - haven't found the darned thing yet. Ended up at the dealer having the entire release button replaced. And, dealer says they aren't sure if there's a manual release on my model. Anyone know for sure? Could be the cause for a bad day if this occurs during holidays or weekends after dealer hours. Yikes! :eek:
And, BTW, I love my MO. It has been back to the dealer more times than I care to take a car, but they're really responsive and have, to date, resolved all the issues the car has presented - from blown fuses one day off the lot, to various rattles, front vibration, and now a malfunctioning door release. Oh my. But,yes, I'd do it all over again!
