The latch on the gas cover has malfunctioned again making the cover unable to be opened. The last time this happened the dealer was able to manually move the latch by removing the panel at the right rear and reaching in with his hand to release the latch. He told me how to do it in case the situation happened again, but I have forgotten exactly what he said. I did attempted to reach the latch, but could not locate it with my finger. Previous models had a manual release, but the 2002 does not, a serious omission in my opinon. Can you help? Thanks.

I know this happened on my old 850 T5, it might be the same, but there was a wire with a loop on the end, in the right rear panel that you pulled to release the lock.

Brad999, thanks for the reply, but you will note from my post that year 2002 models do not have a manual release, as previous models did.
