    Default Fuel flap central locking motor failed!

    Anyone had this problem?

    Went to fill up this morning and the flap was jammed. Went in through the side panel in the boot, and loosened the motor from it housing and opened the flap. Pushed the motor back into it's housing and tried the cenral locking with the flap open; it's locking, (rod from motor is sliding out), but not going retracting when unlocked.

    Hope it was just the cold weather last night!!!

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    Brass monkey's here in Surrey last night. Down to about 10° last night!!

    I doubt the lube will work as there's no sign of life from the motor at all when I unlock. Wonder if the Cavalier motor is the same as got a few in my toolbox!

    Will keep you posted.

    Paul.

    Well it looks like the motor is knackered.

    Took it out of it's housing behind the wheel arch and locked and unlocked the car loads of times. The motor ram comes out but not back in.

    Not desperate but will need a new motor. See if i can wangle it on warranty.

    Paul.
