Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.

The actuator has failed they are correct there is no cable for the fuel door its all operated by a electronic click push type actuator even if you remove the trunk liner on that side you may not be able to get the latch to release because these are replaced when the fuel door is open you can try to remove the right rear trunk trim panel and see if you can get it to release but you may have to have it towed to the dealer and have them release the actuator if you have had ice in your area try to pour hot water on the fuel door it may be frozen .I hope this helps.
If you need more information please do not hesitate to ask.
