Are you removing the panel in the trunk? Or inside the vehicle?
Okay, you are looking for a small actuator up near the wheel well. I have attached a picture of the rod and actuator. You may be able to feel it if you can't pull the panel all the way off.
Pull the little rod toward the rear of the vehicle.
I'll wait on here for you.
You need to sort of aim your hand toward the gas door, the actuator and rod are in line with the center of the door when viewed top to bottom.
Sorry we couldn't be more help.
