I'm a female - if that helps. WHY can't I find it?, I'll go outside and look again. It's that inside release under the dash I'm struggling with.

Oh, that's got nothing to do with it. I looked until I was blue in the face for a picture but none to be found. Start pulling levers and knobs and everything..unless it's broken off, it's got to be there

Ford Nut is not correct - unless you've got an SL; the SEL is on the lower extreme left side; once you pull that a second lever will pop thru your front grille - PULL that one as you lift.
