Stuck tailgate

Before I take the car to a service centre, is there a manual way to open the tailgate on my 159 Sportswagon when neither the key fob nor the release button in the car will do it?

Not had to try it but I think there's a little lever on the lock mechanism that you can get at from within the boot?

There is a cable to pull from within the car.
If I remember correctly (never used it), it is coloured red and lives near the fuse box in the compartment near the right rear wheel arch
