    Anyone know what this is in the picture. It is on the left hand side in the trunk area. Is this the manual trunk release? Is this how it is or is something missing here like a pull handle, etc?

    That's not where the manual says the trunk release is (page 13).

    Yeah, I'm not sure what this was so thought I ask if folks knew. I'll check with the SC next week during my appt.

    Not sure if they can place an interior light there.

    This may sound like a stupid question, but can anyone please tell me where the Model X emergency/manual trunk release actually IS? I've had my 2017 MS 100D for going on two months, but don't have a clue where this might be. The owners manual describes a location which doesn't seem to apply to my vehicle.
