Gas tank access door won't open when using the electronic

Customer Question

gas tank access door won't open when using the electronic switch or the interior manual release from the inside of the car. 2001 Audi Quatro TT
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: Yes, no worries with the gas or running - strictly gas door access.
JA: What is the model of your '01 Audi?
Customer: Audi Quatro TT
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I do need to fix it myself. I have just tried the switch, manual level located behind the passenger seat, and accessing through the little panel in the side of the trunk, directly under the door, from inside the trunk. I just don't know what to do when I get inside that panel.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: No I don't think so. Everything else is working fine.

Have you tried to pry it open gently from the outside with a soft cloth and a space knife?
