    It started happening to me last week but instead of not opening, mine wasn't closing at first and finally it did after several attempts.
    Embarrassing moment while pulling up to a gas station and others admire your car and then this happens.
    I'm getting this looked at by the dealer while its booked for brake service and A2 service.

    same thing happened to me twice where after refueling, the cap wouldn't close. I'm closing it in normal fashion, but the lock won't hold the cap. I had to try 10 times before it latches and keeps it closed. happened couple months ago and now this week again. I'll mention that to the dealer next time I'm there.

    The issue with my CLA was resolved by replacing the solenoid. Weiyun was correct, thanks!

    Good ... the resolution is a consistent one at least ... but a low cycle solenoid going dead like that? 😕

    Same issue with me not closing but l realised that the mechanism is a little slow to lock so l just hold the fuel door for a few seconds before it locks.

    they take the issue for granted because the other aspects of MB still takes them above their margin of earnings. business....
    yeah MB - the Best OR NOTHING....
    On the side note, I'm enjoying this C300 loaner. I'm going to drive it around later. I feel like this is how they make up for the annoyances.

    Bring it back to the dealer. MB owes you that.

    My dealer told me that would be a switch, not solenoid.
