I have an ugly feeling that the adustment for the latch mechanism slipped so that the stationary part is now moving with the mobile part.
I would almost bet that you can lift the trunk lid a little.
Is there no access whatsoever through the floor of the trunk?
On most vehicles there are holes under the mat that allow access to places not accessible from outside.
If your spare is in a horizontal well, then it really isn't likely that you could reach the latch assembly even if you have plugged holes.
You might check your owner's manual to see if your car is equipped with an emergency release for children trapped in the trunk by accident.
If there is, you may be able to reach it by drilling a smaller hole behind the lower seat cushion which should be removable even if the upper one is not.
I confess to being very curious about the potential cure for this problem.
If you solve it, you might post it back for the benefit of others.

Have you checked the trunk switch in the glove compartment to make sure it is on? Just a thought.
To remove the rear seats: there are two tabs for the rear seat bottom one on the left and one on the right, look at the front bottom of the seat cushion. Pull the tabs and lift up on the seat it should come out easily. Once the seat bottom is out you will have access to the mounting hardware for the seat back. Good Luck.

THIS IS REAL SIMPLE I HAVE DONE THE SAME THING TO INSTALL THE IPOD INTERFACE MANY TIMES.. STEP 1 MOVE BOTH FRONT SEATS ALL THE WAY UP TO ALLOW U TO HAVE SPACE STEP 2 LOOK UNDER THE SEATS AT THE BASE AND U WILL SEE 2 BUTTON STYLE CLIPPS 1 ON EACH SIDE OF THE SEAT, PLACE YOUR FINGERS ON THE SIDE OF THE BUTTON AND PULL IT TOWARDS YOU,AND AT THE SAME TIME LIFT THE SEAT.. REPEAT THAT STEP FOR BOTH SIDES AND THE SEAT FLIPS RIGHT OUT
