Giulietta fuel cap door /portal release
« on: March 26, 2018, 05:11:31 PM »
The fuel cap door release function on my Giulietta  is not working ( on a regular basis) .I  have been using the emergency release ( red wire in the boot) but not really a long term fix . I have read on some of the English forums the  mechanism flex's with age. You can use something soft like a credit card under the latch whilst pushing to get it to release, again not a satisfactory long term fix . Anyone else had this problem or know of a long term fix .
