SOURCE: 2002 BMW 325 - key locked in trunk

There are several suggestions out there on how to retrieve BMW keys from the trunk. Many of the ways I tried failed, and it takes 2 to 3 days to get a new key made up. In the coupe there is the center piece in the back seat that folds down. Then on the back wall there is material that will fold down that is held up with Velcro. Behind that you will find a rubber insulation that is mostly cut and looks like a door, but not all the way. Carefully cut the rubber to remove the piece. Now you will find a metal wall, but there is a large piece that is tack welded on. I got turned around and kicked it with the bottom of my foot and got 3 sides loose. Then a softball bat knocked the final side loose. Pull that out and trash it, the final barrier is the insulation that is held in place with plastic clips that can just be pushed down. After that you can a pretty large hole to work through and get the keys. Just put everything back in place other than the metal plate and you will never know anything was done.

SOURCE: BMW 850i trunk will not open

I found if you lock the glove compartment this will disable the boot from opening. Check the solenoid on the glove compartment is not switched shut. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How to replace BMW X5 E53 Trunk Upper Lid Latch

First, watch your fingers, this can be hazardous. You may only need an adjustment in the mating surface of the latch. If you have an automatic pull-down feature on the lock, then more care will be needed to adjust this.

Because of the linkage inside the door, and electric connections, you most likely will need to remove the decorative doorlid panel. There can be conceled bolts if everything is not held together by plastic snaps.

But for the striker plate assembly in the bottom of the cargo frame opening, you may only find a big loop of metal with several bolts holding it in place. If any heavy object was recently raked across this fixture, then the adjustment may have been smashed out of alignment. You only need to reset this metal loop to provide for a tight latching fit.

Bet to check afterwards with a garden hose to see if the seal is tight.

An alternative repair shop could be a Glass shop. The procedure to replace a rear window inside the hatch depends on how it is hinged. A shop such as this could work on the latch. Also Collision shops would be very good for Body alignment issues involving latches.

I hope my solution is helpful.
