The only way even romotely possible way of getting in the trunk is to remove the key lock it'self and use a large flat tip screwdriver to move the catch by hand. you will have to replace the lock itself but the cost will be minimal. as far as the back seat is concerned they are bolted down and to my knowledge are no longer removable in most models. please rate this

My trunk is stuck shut, how can I get it open? I can hear the lock mechanism unlatching using both the key fob and the latch by the drivers seat, but nothing is happening.


The seal around the Trunk is probably a bit sticky. It happens in winter. When you release the mechanism pull up on the trunk. To stop it happening spray the seal with a silicone spray like Jigaloo or dust it with talc.

If back seats fold down like my 2003 Impala, you should be able to access trunk through back seat. There is an emergency release in the trunk to open trunk lid

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk.

My trunk lock and release is no longer working in my 2005 Toyota Corolla. Although I can turn the key left and right as per owner's manual, trunk will not "pop open". Back seat release is in trunk; removed...


In my '04 corolla I can unlatch the left passenger seat back by reaching behind the left seat back and sticking my finger up into the second of 3 quarter sized holes. my arm is about 15" stuck in and reaching up into the trunk about 6" back. Feel around for the holes. You can pull the latch at that point, but...you have to be flexible.

Trunk stuck on a 03 Corolla


I was able to unlock my trunk by using a wood pole to operate the interior safety unlock handle, which is located just above the trunk floor, against the rear of the trunk lid. You simply insert the wood pole between your rear seats, while attempting to locate the handle release. When you find the handle, use the wood pole to push down on it.

Then, I had to take the top of the truck mat loose by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the plastic plug holders loose from the trunk. I also had to use a 10mm socket to loosen the trunk locking mechanism. Once inside, I notice the remote release cable ball had dislodged from its slot. I simply placed the ball in its slot and reassembled the trunk.

Problem solve. :)
