Lighting pilot light on Rheem gas water heater

Does anyone know how to access the pilot light on one of these water heaters? There's suppose to be an outer and inner door where the pilot light is, but I'm not sure what the instructions are referring about the inner door. I can open the outer door that accesses the pilot light unit, but have no idea how to open the inner door for it where I think the pilot light is behind. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm tired of taking cold showers Thanks in advance for any responses.

Inner door

The inner door usually either slides to one side or lifts off. Without seeing the equipment, I'm not going to be of much more help. How about a neighbor?
