Is there any way I can get it open myself?
You may be able to open it yourself by reaching the latch from underneath. Remove the splash panel under the bumper that goes between the bumper cover and the radiator support. Reach up from underneath to operate the latch. It is a bit of a long reach, and an awkward position, but it is possible. I do this at the junkyard frequently to find parts.
