Quoting the manual: the "Luggage Compartment Lid Release Actuator" is at the "Center rear of luggage compartment lid, near latch assembly." If you've got a trunk lid liner you'll need to pull some of the fasteners for access. There are 11 altogether, including three along the forward edge of the trunk lid, but if you're careful you can probably just pull a few closest to where you need to work, and move the liner aside without having the whole thing fall on you.

I think they were looking for the button. Otherwise we'd have to sum up Andy'* manual quote to say. The trunk opener is in the trunk. hahahahaha ps...behind a whole lot of fasteners

I was wondering that, too, but I finally decided that they couldn't possibly be referring to something that'* right there on the door... or could they?

If it fails again, lube the actuator and the latch mechanism.

No, just get some lube on the moving parts, or the shaft, and exercise it a few times.
