Hi,

So the other day I put a big box in my trunk and i closed it. It opened fine using the key (its an SI so when I say the key, i mean the button on the key....since theres no key hole in the trunk for SI models). Then I closed it again.....when i tried to open it later (with the key) , it sounded like the lock was jammed. I tried pulling the lever below the driver seat (the one to open the trunk and the gas) and nothing happened. I cant get the back seats down....since the only way to do that is from the trunk
CAN ANYONE HELP ME???? IM IN A..........jam hah.

Thanks a lot

^^^ haha at first i was like ....really....hah good thing i didnt comment and make myself look stupid....

but anyways..... I did what mr bill said...took off the cushions and took the seat backs off the pivot..and squeezed in and unlacthed the seat backs....i crawled into the trunk with a flash light and discovered the lock was broken...
i could see a spring that popped loose. soo i used a flathead and stuck it in the locking mechanism and pushed a metal latch to the right and the trunk opened....after taking off the plastic that covers the lockiing mech and messing wit the lock some ...i saw that the when i pushed the buttom ont he key and the lever by the driver seat....a plastic black lever in the lockin mech didnt hit the metal lever (the one i pushed to the right)....it was strange...but after a while i realized that the whole black thing (the thing with the trunk opening switch fromt the inside it also has the motor and the black lever that pushes the metal lever) was bent towards the front of the car....thats why it the two levers didnt connect...so i simply bent it back towards the rear...and ..............im outta my jam hah
