There is a pull handle down by your feet, on the door side- pull it. Your hood should pop up slightly. When you go out there, lift slightly and you will see a small pull handle sticking out the very center of the front edge- pull it straight and the secondary lock will release.
If it doesn't release easy with the cabin lever, you may need to have someone lift up on the hood slightly while you pull the lever
