Emergency Releases

The rear one is behind the left rear taillight. Remove the lens assembly and you can see it. If you need to fish it out you must go under the rear bumper between the heat shields.

The front one is behind the right front headlight (from the factory) and is very difficult to get to. You would need to pull the wheel liner back to reach that one. What a lot of folks (including me) have done on the front is to relocate it behind the plastic tow hook plug in the front bumper. You can secure it there with a short piece of fishing line and wrap it around the plug. Pull the plug out and you have easy access. :D

It is 'easy' to find the front trunk release with the headlight and the liner out.

That is why I extended the front cable with a piece of wire, over to the side marker. No need to take anything apart to open the front trunk if you need to charge or jump the battery. The other way is like Loren said, reroute the cable to the tow eye place. Jeff
