I will try to illustrate this..
1. because of the honeycomb grill is broken/split on the driver side, I have a narrow but horizontally long gap which was helpful to slide in and adjust a bent wire coat hanger from the driver side towards center of car.
2. with a flash light, i could see the plate that which the latch or mechanism is mounted on. (at first i didn't see it because of all the other manual latch and its components in front of it) do note, you can only see the metal plate as looking through the grill.
3. on metal plate(about 5"-6" long)
there are these circles/hooks looking thing on the 2 ends
high mid point - another circle
4. wire hook was inserted in between the mid circle and end hook on driver side and pulling towards driver side. also to aim slight lower than middle point. need lots of patient and re-adjustments!
hope this isn't too much detail!
