If you open the door wide - near the bottom, between the body and the door you'll see the door loom wiring encased in a plastic sleeve. It then has a big connector (almost like a SCART) that is plugged into the door.

Unplug this connector and give both sides of the connection a clean, ideally with a squirt of switch / contact cleaner for both sides

also there's an emergency pull tab in the boot for the fuel filler its a yellow plastic arrow shaped tab that you pull to release the flap. On the estate it's in the RHS floor storage locker.
