    I was able to open these before. The car has to be on a lift with the splash guard off. If you look up with a strong light you can see the latch and the cable near the radiator. You need to reach the cable and pull on it.

    Thanks Zee, I haven't actually tried to open it yet, but I took a mirror and looked through the grille and I can see the cable, so I'm sure that will work, thanks again!
