    Just had this problem. Was able to pull back the locking pin manually. Managed to cut myself so watch out for the sharp edges.

    I don't like that you cut your self.

    Once you remove ANY piece of trim you are likely to have exposed many areas that can injure you.

    Zafira 1.9D Design
    I just fixed this too on my Zafira B, I opened the plastic flap on the inside of the boot on drivers side. (Where the back of the rear light cluster is). By reaching inside the second chamber nearer the outside of the car, towards the top you can feel a rectangular plastic housing, which holds the solenoid. On the top face of this housing near the front is a small hole just big enough to put your finger in and pull the plunger back.
    Once the fuel flap was opened, I tried the key fob a few times and the solenoid appears to be working, so might have just been jammed. We'll see how it goes.
