Hey there thanks for the question. An IMMEDIATE remedy to get the fuel door to open if it's NOT unlocking is to place something on the center right hand side of it to carefully pry it open. You may want to tape the painted area to make sure it doesn't scratch. The lock is simply a little actuator that holds a metal tab that bends easily. Im not sure if your saying the gas door won't unlock or if its just not partially opening? that will determine how to proceed with a fix later, I was giving you a way to get gas in the car for the time being.
