Sorry it might be a bit late now but I've taken a couple of photos to help if not you the next person to stumble across this problem.

With the boot open put your hand in through the gap for the roof mechanism as shown.

there is a bit of carpet covering a access hole in the bodywork.

I've stuck my phone in and tried to take a photo of what your feeling for.

please excuse the drawing I'm trying to illustrate it has more of a lug on top this is what I pulled to release the fuel cap.

Hope this helps, and my pictures work.

PS I still haven't tried to make it lock again its not a major problem where my car is normally parked.
