Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of Thanks.

The vehicle we will be working on is this 2007 Audi A4, but this should be the same for 2003-2008, and maybe even beyond those years.

It's pretty simple, just open up your trunk and you should see a little round indentation on the passenger side. Pry it out and then I believe you can pull that red, you can see in there, there's a red tab. You can probably pull it out without removing this bolt. This bolt holds the tail light in though.

Use a flat blade screwdriver. You can unscrew it by screwing it counterclockwise, and then you can see that ring right there. Reach in, pull it back, and you'll release the fuel door.

Thanks for tuning in. We hope this video helped you out. Next time you need parts for your car, please visit Also check out our other helpful how-to and diagnosis videos.
