It will be easy to solve your problem with such a detailed explanation of the issue.

Take it to the dealership. That is all the explanation they will need.

What's a boot? Is that a Frunk?

A frunk is in front, a trunk is in back.

In UK and Australia, we call what you call the trunk, a "boot". So I suppose, if we use the same method of naming the front storage area, we should call this the "Froot"!

There's a pull cable that you need to find. Google as suggested or take a look in the manual too.

had some free time and decided to try all possible areas and got lucky first time.
removed wheel, back left corner, uk passenger side. one bolt to remove from liner towards rear of car. pulled it forward and reached around behind to find loop of wire and pulled firmly. release cable had snapped from boot release. crimped on new loop of wire to snapped end with electrical crimping tool.
