This is the one I was referring to...

Third Method

Inside the top of the driver's front wheel well, just aft of the spring coil mount, is a little rectangular corner in the black plastic shroud that lines the inside of the wheel well. Reach under this, and you will feel a "wire" about 1/8" in diameter. Too thick for an electrical wire (and not in a harness anyway). Tug this cable gently out from behind the shroud and get a good grip on a loop of it. Now pull hard away from the headlight once, and prepare to hear the music of the alarm as the front hood pops open. Grab a 10mm wrench and take off one of the battery cables to silence the alarm.

Eric adds:

"If you lay down under the front bumper you will see 4 openings and you can look all the way up them to the hood. The space between the trunk and bumper.

All the way up on the passenger side you will see the piping for the AC. (at least that's what I think it is). In my case I was also able to see the 1/4" cable that runs from the trunk latch towards the passenger front wheel well.

I was able to reach up and hook that cable and pull down on it to open the trunk, I then rerouted the cable making it easier to do again if needed.

I actually used part of a plant hangar my neighbor had in his garage and a flashlight so I could see what I was doing. It would help if you could jack up that side and stabilize it to make it a bit easier to get under there."
