    As the title say's I can open my feul flap on my signum. I'm I being stupid? I dont remember having to press a button to unlock it. There is a finger grip on the outside aswel.

    I can prise it open about 5mm but then it jams.

    Have you fully unlocked the car (ie if when you press the unlock button once on the key fob only the driver's door unlocks, press it again to unlock all the doors - this then unlocks the flap).

    Failing that, and I know my old Vec B had it, there may be a pull tag behind the boot trim that will pull the lock pin back so you can open it.

    Years ago I bought a new Peugeot 405, picked it up from the dealer, went to fill it up but couldn't open the flap (no lever inside, no finger grip on the outside etc).

    Took about 30s to discover that you pressed the front of the flap in to open it....

    What a berk I looked on the forecourt!
