    See my post #5. The dealer had a tool they had to use in the service dept. to get mine open.

    Was hoping that there was an emergency release inside the trunk like most other cars.

    I think it is only an emergency trunk release.

    GRRR this was me at the gas station this morning.

    Unlocked/locked numerous times, but nothing would get the flap open. The gas station assistants came over to help, but it still wouldn't open.

    And you guessed it, the minute i got home (without having filled up the tank), i tried it and it popped right open!! But now, it won't close! I'm going to have to tape it shut and drive over to the dealership later. And my car is barely 2 years old!

    Don't feel bad, happened to me when the car was only a few months old. They replaced the whole latching mechanism, no troubles since. See post # 5 in this thread.

    GRR. Bought a certified pre-owned CLA250 last weekend and had this issue within 5 days of buying the car. The car had all the premium features, less than 10k miles on it and a clean carfax so I felt like I was getting a great deal, but now I'm a little weary of this "rigorous 165 point inspection" certified cars get. This is my first Benz so hoping I don't have similar issues going forward.

    PS. As a new MB owner, this forum is definitely suuuper helpful. Can't wait to go through older threads over the next few weeks

    Obviously, it needs to be a 166 item checklist.

    I'm guessing the fuel door worked just fine up until one day it didn't. Was the car FULL of fuel when you picked it up?

    The solenoid needs replacing. Happened to my last car. Or go back to the dealer for warranty.
