SOURCE: Passat trunk stuck shut - 3 repair men have not been able to fix! Please Help!!

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.

SOURCE: trunk won't open on 2004 infinity i35

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.

Possibly. Check for the proper amount of freon in the system. There are pressure sensing switches that stop the compressor as a safety measure.

Does 2003 buick lasabre have access panel for skis in middle of rear seat


In the trunk of the car there is a black panel behind the rear seat remove screws that hold this panel on. There are three magnets at the top of the panel. Remove panel and put screws in safe place. Go back to the inside of the vehicle there are three brackets that hold in top cover of back seat remove that lay it down in the back seat. You now have complete access from the rear seat to the trunk. To reassemble reattach rear seat top. Reassemble black panel in trunk just attach to metal with magnets and then put screws back in. Hope this is helpful and informative.

Did you ever find an answer to this problem? I am interested because I also have a 2003 V6 4-Motion Passat and am having similar issues. I only have 86,000 miles on it, but I'm sure if I have to end up replacing the transmission it would not be worth it. I'd be interested to hear what ended up happening with yours. Thank you!
