I can't open my gas door on C5, and the manual release cord in my trunk has pulled out of release assembly.

The manual release braided wire cord did not break, the nub on the end of the wire slipped out of the gas door release mechanism.

I know I could fix it if I knew how to get at gas door release.

Any suggestions would be great. I need to fill up my gas tank!

Do you hear the solenoid click? Have you checked the fuse? Or had someone pull on the door while you press the switch?
