Hllo and welcome to JustAnswer!

It sounds as if you may have a failed latch.

Do you hear the liftgate lock actuator when pressing the unlock button on the fob or door?

I see that you've removed the trim panel. Have you tried moving the linkage at the latch by hand after unlocking it and it still will not open?
