Well, the fuel door does open, but I have to go into the trunk and fish around for a while to open it manually. It seems the fuel door switch isn't working. I've checked all the fuses and everything seems to be on the up and up.

Anyone else ever come across this issue?

The switch on the driver's side door that you use to open the fuel door. The one right next to the the trunk switch.

had the same problem on my 02 passat.. Couldn't find the manual release on the trunk, but according to the dealer the problem was a bad connection in the door panel... My suggestion was take out the switch/door and check yourself
