Fuel Filler Pannel

On 2006 s6 is the pannel covering the filler cap ment to lock ?

It should lock when the Central Locking is activated via a Pin that comes from the side and goes through a hole on the Filler Flap catch mechanism.

If the keys are out of the ignition but car is not locked, it will remain open (for filling obviously).

ok dose anyone know how to fix such a problem?

Open fuel flap ... close all doors ... stand infront of fuel flap ... operate key remote to lock then unlock.  You should see a bright steel pin (a bit like a knitting needle !!! ) pop out and then back in from the rear edge.  If not, get in the boot and strip out the carpet from the right side, and see if the connections are secure on the actuator.

HTH

Thanks i have tried lockin and unlockin but the pin is happy stayin in its hole and their is no sound from flap so the next step is strip the boot out i guess , oh the joys !

Does it have any obvious signs of corrosion, or is it clogged with crap?

Try spraying some white grease into the sleve where the pin is - and then try a few more times locking and unlocking.  You might get lucky.

I will give it a go but it looks fairly clean worth a try before rippin the boot apart lol untill then i hope the tank dosnt get sucked dry !

Is it permanently locked closed?  If so, there will be an emergency release inside the one of the access covers inside the boot.

No its permanently open that's the issue lol but i would like to know were the release as i had the staying lock problem on my last car that was a 2005 s4

I'm sure the drivers handbook will show you where the emergency release is.  They are usually a red plastic D shaped loop, about the size of a 10p, attached to a cable.  Often hidden by a little circular flap in the side carpet.
