Is it the petrol filler or the charging port?
Mine did this on the petrol filler a while ago and I just kept trying until it opened.I then sprayed the mechanism with WD40 especially around the pin release area.It hasn't happen since.I think it's due to not being opened very often and bit of grit gets stuck in the mechanism.
I'm not 100% sure but I think theres a release pull in the boot on the side of the filler cap.It might be under a bit of trim on the vertical bulkhead in the boot.I could be wrong but worth having a look?

Yes, there is a release pull in the boot. As Videodoctor said, it is common issue that the petrol filler cover sticks (and the consensus is that it is down to low usage).
