Fuel Filler Door / Lever not working
After waiting in line for gas at COSTCO on NYE eve, I pressed the lever, and voila, nada. Nothing happened. The door didn't pop open as it has faithfully done every time in the past. After asking several people for help, all of whom were of no help, no one else offered help (mostly because they were occupied honking their horns instead), about twenty minutes later, and countless tries, one of the "attendants" (for lack of better term since they don't seem to attend to much other than resupplying paper for receipts) managed to somehow open it. I asked him what he did, and he walked away without telling me anything, so I have no clue if this is a lever problem or a spring problem with the door itself. I really don't want to have a repeat of this problem, but I'm also not looking forward to paying Toyota another outrageous amount of money for something avoidable. How do I determine if it's the door creating the problem or the lever?
Thanks in advance for any help.
