    Look in your trunk near where the gas cap is, there should be a manual cable handle for your gas cap. It should be in your owners manual as well.

    For the newer body style 2005 Jetta's there is no manual lever to open the gas door. I found the same problem, the think tan cable was broken between the door and body and was able to hold the ends together to get the gas door open and drivers window up until I can get it repaired. Thanks a million to whoever posted that answer!
