Hello All. The fuel door on my 87 stuck and would not open. Was able to finally get it open and the inside release is working, sort of. Is there supposed to be a spring on this door? Have had this car since new and never remembered one on there.

When I had that problem on my Corolla, turned out the cause was some insect or spider made a coccoon inside that held down the door and I had to wedge a stick in the flap then pull the release to unlock it, then pull the door to tear the webbing.

Your spring has broken off from the plastic part circled. Replacement instructions are here. They fail so much, you can get one on Amazon or any auto parts store for $5-10.
