There should be one in the boot on the left hand side next to the spare wheel - there is a clip to hold it in place, unless the previous owner lost it. MY13 HSE Lux Santorini Black

I have just learnt about this i have had my car 6 months, i always had trouble trying to fill up i assumed this was just the way they are, then last week the fuel station i used had its own attendant, and he told me about it, i came home found the tool in the boot and found how to use it in the owners manual, it only took a few seconds to do, and was so easy too
