Hello Everyone,

Recently I have had an issue that when I start my car the Gas Tank Lid randomly opens up. I then have to get out and close it and this has happened a few times in the past week. Some of it has been while I am in drive and slow down to the first stop sign near my house. Some of it has been the minute I turn on the car.

I know the lid is electric but has anyone else seen this happen to their QX30?

I can confirm that 2017 QX30 is not electric, it is a manual push/pop-in lid.

I was able to examine my wife's fuel filler door (easy boys) over the weekend. Mercedes has completely over-complicated this process! Despite being push-to-open, they are using an electric latch mechanism.


I checked the factory service manual, and it seems fairly easy to remove for inspection... I'd suggest taking it to the dealer, since you should be under warranty, but if you want to try it yourself:

Had same random opening fuel door problem on my ‘17 QX30. Brought it to the dealer; they said they were “unable to duplicate the problem” while it was there and did nothing. Strangely, it never opened randomly after that visit. But when I went to fill up a few days later, the fuel door would not OPEN! Went back to dealer; this time they changed a defective actuator. Has worked fine since!
