Im in the USA, so my software doesnt have any info on your vehicle.I did a little searching and came up with the same info you did from your manual. Did you look with avery bright flashlight to see if the lever was maybe off to the side a little? On auto-opening doors like this, the manufacturer almost always puts a manual release on it as well.
