    Fuel door manual override cable 1994 Seville

    My cable is sitting loose in the trunk. The cable is not broken and still is intact with the little piston at the end that holds it in place with the override mechanism. Does anyone have a picture of how the cable is to be fitted into the opening mechanism. Tx very much in advance,

    Once I was able to unbolt the manual override mechanism near the fuel cap the cable fit through easily and seated itself nicely in the mechanism. Intuitive and no diagram needed.

    Never seen a diagram for that. Probably one of those thing you just have to get into.

    Re: Fuel door manual override cable 1994 Seville

    When I bought my car (7 years ago) I had no manual override cable.
    5 years ago in a cold winter day I was trying with a blow dryer to unfreeze the stuck release solenoid.
    That's when I realized maybe my cable is not missing, maybe is broken by the previous owner.
    Sure enough, I actually had the cable but it was as I suspected broken.
    So I found a new cable and took me 2 minutes to replace it. You really need no diagram of any kind is very intuitive.
