An old thread I know, but I had this problem today and it turned out to be easy.

1. Remove a couple of the rear seats so that you can climb into the boot area
2. Remove the lower two screws holding the interior tailgate panel (you'll need a T20 driver).
3. Pull the bottom of the panel out just enough to get your hand inside and feel for the vertical rod that connects the boot lock button to the actual catch at the base of the tailgate.
4. Feel your way to the base of the rod and then push the button there downwards to pop the boot open.

It'll be a bit trial-and-error the first time but it's defintely possible as I managed it today. Once you get the rear tailgate panel off, you'll see just how easy it is!
