HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Hopefully you have gotten it by now, but if not, remove the passenger side interior trunk panel and you will see a solenoid at the fuel filler area[ see attached] you can manually push the solenoid plunger to open the door
