Did you have to use the manual release? Did it work?

waiting for Fuel Flap actuator from Germany
had to do manual mode 2x during Targawest

Fuel flap cover was almost lost too as it slides into place.
Another thing that "almost" fell off

Items that have fallen off since new:
a) door reflectors
b) front right BMW badge

I had the same problem on mine, used the manual release a couple of times, and now the button release seems to be working again ?!? " Looking into" the problem would have required all day to run "diagnostics" on the car and cost $270 (out of warranty).
