Depends upon what is wrong. Usually the spring assembly that causes it to open when you pull the release is broken - in this case you have to replace the spring assembly. Should be able to get that at a junk yard. Another possibility is that the cable that runs from the release to the door is broken, so then you have to replace it. To know which it is, ask someone to hold the release lever in the (lifted) open position and see if you can gently pry open the door. If you can then it is likely the spring assembly and you should be able to see it to know if it is broken. If you can't pry it open, then it is likely the cable. In this case get help before the gas runs out since you won't be able to refill the tank with the door shut. If you can't get parts at the junk yard, then be prepared to pay a lot at the dealer for parts. One of two parts is broken, the fuel door spring, or the plastic release pin is broken (see picture). The plastic release pin is generally the problem. It is spring loaded against itself. When you pull up the fuel door release lever it moves into the shaft. If the plastic release pin is broken, the end part stays put and you can't open the fuel tank. Toyota doesn't just sell the pin, you have to buy the cable, part number 77035-AA020. It is $49.95 plus an arm and a leg to install it. We manufacture an aftermarket steel pin and spring assembly for $19.99. Shipping is free to North America. Instructions are included to open your fuel door and replace the pin. It is easy, all you will need is a flat screw driver and a pliers. This part is 100% guaranteed for the life of your car . Return it for a full refund if you are not happy.

Not sure what you are asking here. If you want to know how to get the fuel "door" open,it is the small handle adjacent to the trunk lever near the door sil.If you are asking where the cable is for the fuel door,it has to be behind the trim in the trunk where the fuel filler is located.

Where can I adjust the play in the cable for the remote fuel door on a 2006 Subaru Outback?

I don't know but you probably don't have to adjust the cable. If the pin at the fuel door that engages the hole in the bracket on the fuel door is moving 3/16 to 1/4 inch or so when some one gently activates the fuel door lever, then all you have to do is gently bend the bracket on the fuel door until the pin just engages the bracket on the fuel door but still disengages from the bracket when the lever is pulled.
