Hello everyone! I have a 2018 Kia Niro and the flipping petrol cap door thing won't open. I've pressed the door release button inside and makes a noise like it's doing something but it doesn't actually open! Please can someone help?

Thank you!

Jackie

Thank you Old John. I think you are right, it was frozen. I sprayed some de-icer carefully into the gap, then ran a knife with a teatowel over it around the rim. Then hey presto! It opened! So I've given it a good clean there now too :)
