It"s manual. I check out some prior short articles where there may be some excess plastic the blocks the door native opening, however, i dont think that"s the problem here. I acquired a screwdriver behind the door, and also it felt choose the door panel was gonna rest from the plastic ingredient inside. I didnt want to pull any type of harder. I doubt something electronic or miscellaneous wrong v the locking mechanism itself. Is there another way to open it up?

From there you deserve to decide to cut the plastic save or require to dealer; else, just take come dealer.

Maybe someone can write-up a photo, however what piece needs to be "smoothed"? Never had actually the problem, but perhaps I have the right to avoid the in the future. Say thanks to you.
Haven"t had a difficulty with mine but I constantly felt it was a poor design...interested in this alleged fix. Would it be possible with vagcom to not have the fuel door lock v the car?
This appears to it is in an worry with plenty of VW models, mine 2012 Treg TDI had actually the same problem, dealer had the ability to release the door and had come order a brand-new locking mechanism and also installed so it now is fine. I have a new alltrack and will need to take a look to watch if it has the same mechanism. That doopy not to have an emergency release in the trunk.:banghead::banghead:
