everytime i lock the car it makes this crazy loud grinding, twisting of metal sound. The doors still lock and unlock fine. The noise is coming from this spot right behind the little fuel door. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had anything like this happen.

check if the fuel door itself locks.... because there is a lock actuator for the fuel door that accually locks the fuel door when the car is locked. if the door doesnt lock, then you need a new one of those things. if it does, you probably will still need one because it might be messed up
