2010 Jeep Liberty - how to open hatch without remote

Is there a trick on how to open the hatch when my remote don’t work. I need to replace my back driver side break light & unable to do so since there are currently several electrical issues.

There is a small cover on the inside trim panel, remove that cove to access the emergency release.

Literally just happened to me this week. Here’s the fix: https://youtu.be/BWP_ltus33g

Where is the inside trim panel?

Inside the vehicle, on the lift gate, between the glass and the cargo floor.
