there should be a rubber cap inside the handle shape inside the trunk, pop up and off the top tray behind the backseat see two handles molded into the plastic, on the right hand side one there should be a little rubber circle in it, pry it off and pull it, the trunk will release ,it is just smooth inside both the handle recesses then you will need to unscrew the two screws one in each handle recess and pry the cover enough off the hatch to reach the hatch release mechanism and pull it with your hand to the right

1999 porsche 996 replaced key fob battery disconnected battery now trunk releses are locked and cant access battery.How do you open frt trunk manually

Assuming the car battery is ok (if not, buy a male to male cigarette lighter at the auto store and connect to another car until charged enough to unlock the doors...but don't try to crank the ignition!). The trunks won't open if the battery went dead with the alarm set because arming the alarm physically locks the releases.

Sounds like the key code is switched off because you replaced the key fob battery. Try unlocking the car manual with the key in the door lock. Then switch the ignition on to reactive the keyless entry. If this does not work, you might also try pressing the fob unlock button with the key in the door lock until the dash led flashes.
