Exclamation 2006 X5 hood release not working

I have a 2006 X5 3.0i that the hood release wonít work. Dealership says that the driver side latch is getting bound up and the cables all need to replaced. I am trying to look at which cable and replace myself but I canít get it to open. I found the little circle hole hear the headlight in the grill, but am unsure what I am looking for. A slot to turn? Something that I am suppose to just hit or strike with the screwdriver?

Here is a DIY from our site on the procedure as well. I hope this along with your video will be sufficient.
