Service flap stuck open


Folks I realise this has been discussed a lot previously...

However situation is having managed to release a stuck shut service flap now the lock mechanism is stuck inwards meaning the service flap cannot engage with the lock to close shut.

Liberal amounts of penetrant oil, WD and tapping the barrel to try and 'shock' release the catch and no change....

Any suggestions please?!

In a similar situation I removed the screws holding the catch to the car and used a flat blade jewellers screwdriver to ease the catch out, which meant digging very slightly into the sides of the sliding part. Then more WD40, flexing the cable helped,
