Strange E46 Problem
 
So im walking out of my house, open my car and i hear something make a bouncy sound, i look around my car, and my gas tank opens up? So everytime i press the unlock buttom on my key, it open up, and i gotta push down on it and press lock to close it.. Has anyone else ever experienced this?

Well yea, when you unlock the car the locking mechanism on the fuel tank door opens. But if it's popping up so much then it's faulty.

You may have to mess with that rubber boot around the filler neck. If it's got cocked out of position, it can push the door out when it's not locked. And when you lock it, the lock bolt misses its socket.
