Gas door problem - remains locked

I may be the only person who has experienced this with two successive cars, the previous being a 300TD. Solved that by going inside and releasing the latch manually and expect I'll be able to do that in this instance. But would like to know if anyone knows what
causes the problem. Something wrong with the vacuum system maybe?

The door is locked by a pin that goes into a hole on the door. It could be that the pin is stuck. I have to lubricate my pin because it make a grinding sound when locking/unlocking the car. Take off the lining in the trunk on the gas door side and you should see the plunger.
