Default Noob question

Hello there,
I'm an owner of a S197 mustang and this is the only Mustang I've ever owned. Now my boss just recently bought an 87 5.0 andhe is asking me wherethe fuel door release handle/buttonis? He doesn't bring it to work so I can't really look for it. Any help with locating it would be appreciated.
P.S. a noob question, I know

Open the glove box and there is 2 buttons. One for the trunk and one for the fuel door.

Don't really know about your fox but I'm pretty sure all fox's from 84-93 have the same door release button. It's a solenoid that triggers the rease in the door unlike most cable ones in other cars.

86_5.0L does your car really have the release button or is that sarcasm, just curious. I've see the same button on many other fox bodies.

It looks like this...

Button


Solenoid driven cable

My 93 doesnt have the fuel one just the hatch one. It seems like the later ones only have the hatch release since Ive seen a few early 90s models like that.
