Urgent help needed

My jk 2009 needs petrol but I don't know how to unlock the gas cap

It says turn key 1/4 clock-wise then turn cap other to open it but it locks and doesn't turn

However if I turn the key 1/4 anti clock and try to open the cap turning it the same way it keeps on turning and turning whilst making a soft clicking noise (not the clicking it makes when you have to lock it)


I can't find a video of someone opening it or anything

Turn key harder while holding gas cap still, then turn cap and key together.
