My car has a lever that is part of the assembly to open the trunk that also opens the door covering the gas cap. It is not working. Can I fix this?

You can fix this but you need to find out what's wrong first. See if there's a cable going to the gas door latch and see if it moves and pullls the latch when someone works the handle. It's probably out of adjustment rather than a broken cable, but the lever could be broken too so you have to keep your eyes open for nwhat's reaally wrong.
