You can go to you tube and watch the video on how to open the lift gate when there is no power ,you have to fold down the back seat and pop off the little lite cover on the base of the lift gate ,there you can put in a screwdriver to pop the latch ,and yes ,why they didn’t add a key hole on the outside is stupid
