Most times it this is because a small spring is off on the trunk lid catch. This is caused from [most often] from it being tied down to carry a large item. Or the mounting bolts have worked loose. To check this prob, tighten the bolts first to be sure. Frankster016

This car has a button to open the trunk inside the glove compartment. That button is not working, i just hear a clicking sound. What should i do?


Have helper push button as you try to lift trunk open. I may just be weatherstrip is sticking. Use silicone spray lube on rubber to stop this. If latch has failed may be harder. Does the trunk have a key hole? Often when electric latch has failed you can turn key, then push button or other release mechanism and then turn key further for manual release (some cars--not all).

Cant open trunk


Hi Kathleen lets try with a spare key to unlock trunk if that fails try with any key and a little WD 40. If none of these suggestions work then I'm gonna say that the rod that connects the key to the latch is disconnected or damaged. Gonna require pulling down rear seats using a flashlight, pulling down carpet that is in center of trunk above the latch and remove either 2 or 3 (amount)10 or 8mm (size)bolts that holds latch to inside of trunklid . Once removed the latch will stay on the lock hoop and the trunk should open. Afterwards you have to inspect the trunk lid to determine whether the clip that hold the rod is damaged and needs replacement. Good luck

Cant get the trunk open


Try pressing down on the trunk hard while turning the key. Maybe that will help release. Also pull up hard in case the trunk is hanging up. If all that fails fold down the seat and
with a flashlight and screwdiver ,work your way to latch and have someone on the outside operate the latch to see whats happening

Cant get the trunk to close


You probably have keyless entry feature with this car (can open using key fob). First check the latch mechanism of the trunk, it should be open in the middle like a claw. If it looks like the claw part is closed forming a circle in the middle, then take a screwdriver that will fit in the hole, apply outward pressure and hit the trunk button, or use the key. Another issue maybe the alignment of the latch to the striker (the metal loop in the trunk the claw attaches to). Grasp the striker and make sure it doesn't move, if it does the attaching bolts are loose. If they are loose look at where it bolts, you should see a slight outline of where it used to be. Hold in place and tighten the bolts, try to close trunk. There are also attaching bolts holding the latch to the turnk, which maybe loose, repeat same as striker. If all else fails the latch assembly is at fault, and maybe the locking cam isn't working, replace latch assembly.

2001 AUdi S4 Trunk will not open. Can't open manually or wiht remote. WIll do it speratically. Can not open manually wiht button at trunk or with key. HELP.


The same "latch" secures the trunk closed.
The key, electric relay and button operate the same latch.
IF the trunk fails to open, the "latch" is not completely releasing from the catch that secures it.
The next time that you open it, inspect the adjustment of the latch assembly. It has 2 bolts that secure it. You can loosen them and adjust the assembly to a slight more open position - so that each time you operate the latch, it releases from the catch.

Don't move the assembly too far - or the trunk will not be able to lock closed at all.

Trunk jammed, driver side latch wont' work, keys wont work


You will have to get in the trunk through the back seats, and try and unbolt the latch catch off of the body. Then you will probably have to change both parts if you cannot get the catch out of the latch.
