    Re: Trunk wont open

    Nope never been in an accident. Yeah I am leaning toward the latch too. I have put pressure up down and in on the trunk lid and can see the trunk shifting the way I apply pressure and still nothing. I am going to attempt to remove rear seat this weekend and crawl and hopefully be able to get the molding in the trunk out of the way to see the trunk latch. I am going to be pissed if I remove all the seat and still cant gain access to the latch.

    I know this an older thread but this just happened to me today. I can hear the trunk mechanism click but my trunk will not release. The manual emergency release doesn't work either. Was your issue ever resolved? If so, what was the solution?

    Thanks.

    Dumb question. Have you already tried the key in your fob?

    Or using the hand grab on the trunk lid?

    What manual emergency release are you referring to?
    The emergency release tab for the trunk is located inside the trunk. Have you somehow managed to get hold of that tab and pulled it?

    Not sure what you mean by using the key. There isn't a key hole for the trunk.

    The manual release I am referring to is the handle near the pass through in the back seat.

    Apologies. Had the sedan for more than a year and a half and never noticed. Could have sworn there is a key hole like on the coupe.
    Stupid design.
    Can you reach the trunk release tab by reaching into the pass through?

    ^^^Sedan? Now I'm really flummoxed. Does the sedan have a trunk keyhole or not?!

    OP,
    I've been looking for anything that might help to avoid a dealership visit. This was the best info I could find.

    Best of luck, let us know how everything works out.

    Hi smca,

    I know this trunk issue can be a real inconvenience and I apologize for any frustration it has caused. Have you been able to resolve this concern with any of the suggestions from the forum? If the problem is persisting, feel free to send me a PM and we can discuss the possibility of working with a dealership.

    Have a great day,

    Austin J.
