Honda Accord 2012 EX-L Trunk/Fuel Door Release Cable Install

This is my first post. I recently had to change out the trunk/fuel door release cable on my 2012 Honda Accord. It was fairly straight forward, I:

1) Ran the cable from the trunk to the cab (next to the driver) by taping the new cable onto the old cable and pulling on the old cable.
2) Secured the the new cable to the trunk/fuel door release lever next to the driver.
3) Secured the trunk cable to the trunk latch.

My final task is to install/secure the fuel door release pin but there does not seem to be any way of accessing it. The fuel door is not accessible from the trunk (it is behind a metal frame) and it does not look like it can be accessed from the fuel door on the outside of the vehicle.

Does anyone have any experience with this?
