Hello and thanks for using
From underneath your vehicle if you locate the plastic under tray covering the radiator there are small rectangular cutouts that if you look straight up you will see the bottom of the latch. You then can use a long tool to move the lever. It may be easier to take the under tray off but you don't have to. Let me know.
