I've noticed I don't have one in the trunk. Is there any way of tracing where the string was or getting a new one if it has been ripped?

If the lining has been taken out and the cable wasn't fed back through its slot it could just be behind the lining. If you have already looked there I'm not sure?

If you don't get a good answer I can take a look and see what I can find out.

Yeah if it is behind the lining/carpeting, it will be buried a little bit. It should be back there somewhere! smile

thanks so much! yeah I went digging and dug it out. The first Riv I had the release didn't work so I had to go to the trunk every refuel, i guess i got freaked out when I didn't see it since I know the release can break down and then this is a life saver

Use of a credit card or plasticized card of any kind, handy when detailing or when in a pinch without having to open the trunk for release.

How do I get to the door actuator itself? From the trunk?
Thanks.

Yes, open the trunk and pull the liner away a bit. You will see a cable with a black tag that says fuel door release.
