In the trunk , on the right side , there will be a green rod that is use for emergency opening of the fuel door . It's right behind the right trim . You might need to remove that trim to access it . It's prettry much at the same position of the door but on the inside ! Let me know if it works , I just texted your wife . waiting for her to text me back !
