Fuel Filler flap won't open (cap less opening)

Hey guys,

I drive a european Civic Limo from 2018 and since yesterday I'm facing a problem with my cap less fuel filler. To avoid misunderstandings: the outer fuel door is opening absolutely fine. However, the fuel filler flap (is it called this way? Sorry I'm not a native speaker of english) won't open no matter what. So the round flap of the "cap less" system is completely stuck. I saw several topics about frozen flaps, but I don't think this is the problem in my case. It's about 2C outside and nothing else is frozen and furthermore, there is NO sign of ice or water in or around this flap. It seems to be dry and intact. Has anyone of you guys focused the same problem? How did you solve it? Of course I'm running out of gas and I'm afraid that I won't make it to the next car workshop.
