Hi, I have a new c3 and the fuel flap often requires 10 attempts to unlock with the central locking of the car.
I'm assuming it's the solenoid of the lock that needs replacing however I don't know how to access this area. Has anyone had a similar issue or know a guide on how to replace the door flap as this would hopefully give me access.

The car is a diesel with adblue and hasn't had any work do e recently or had any damage to that area of the car (or any area!)
