Fuel Door Question........

Being that the fuel door is locked when the doors are locked and unlocked when the doors are unlocked, what if the central locking system got screwed up.

How would you get the fuel door open in the event of central lock failure?

There is a way behind the trunk liner to get to the mechanism.
Check your manual.
