Hi there ,good evening to you
Ok the fault lies with a faulty fuel flap locking motor
The fuel flap locking motor is connected on the same locking signal of the drivers door latch
The common fault is that the motor fails and the plastic pinion is stuck outward thus locking the fuel flap
To resolve the issue you need to have the fuel flow locking motor replaced
This is located under the inner wingshield of the arch
You can access this and remove the motor to open the fuel flap
The motor is fitted by a half turn
