    I'm having this issue where I can't lock the charging port door on the front of my 2019 Kona EV.
    Originally, I couldn't get it open and I was running out of juice. I tried pulling that little cable under the hood but that didn't help.
    So, I wedged my fingers under the door and pulled it open.
    Now that little "pop-out thing" on the right inside doesn't pop out. Because of that, the door doesn't latch closed.

    It doesn't look like replacing that assembly is an easy do-it-yourself kind of thing (or maybe it is).
    Does anyone have any suggestions?

  3. The only option is to have the dealer repair it.

    Do you think that's a warranty repair?
  5. It's a common problem and in every case reported on forums repairs were covered under warranty. Can you imagine the outcry if it wasn't?

  8. Here is one similar case in this forum that was indeed covered by warranty;)
