Hello and Welcome..
My name is ***** ***** Im happy to help / advise..
If you go inside the boot area - to the side of the car that the flap is on.. some had an emergency release pull tag... if its there - you will see it protruding through the side wall covering -
If not - pull the covering back and you will see the mechanism clearly - you can manually tug the mechanism to release / open the door / flap..
These had a propensity for breaking on the cable and / or mechanism - you will just have to see what you find when you get in there - but doing that as above will enable to use it / to get fuelled up.
Let me know how you go..and / or let me know if you need anything further on this..
