Gas Tank Door

Frustrated! Does anyone know how to open the gas door on the 2011 FX35 infinity. This is the second time this has happened. Luckily the firstborn time it popped open after several attempts pulling tugging pushing lifting. Now I pull up to the gas station turn the car off the doors automatically open push o. The gas tank door and stuck won't open. Use the key, push button on door nothing. Called a local a local infinity dealer simply clueless!!! Now pull out the manual and tried all techniques to open the door. Still nothing! Frustrated! Google search said something about a cargo area emergency release and I must be to frustrated to find it! Can someone tell me if the model actually has a emergency release gas button ? Or how to open the door! HELP ME PLEASE!!!'

You probably need to lube the little stick thingy that comes out to "lock" the gas door. Next time you can open your gas tank door, press the lock and unlock button several times. You should see something move. I'd go to an autoparts store and ask them what lube they'd recommend first, so you have something on hand when you're doing this...
