SOURCE: releasing the spare tire
if you look when you open the trunk right in the middle of the trunk there is a hole which your crank goes in to release the tire that is mounted under it, turn it either left or right to loosen

Don't know this car, but should be not very much different:
No entire spare tyre there as common today I believe but a so called home comer.
Fixed back down under in the back boot, with a wooden ply board cover?
One bolt to fix her down is common.
Probably you are talking that you can not open the boot because hatch near driver seart is broken or the lock on your boot. Experienced that.
Then you have to struggle in by clapping rear seats down
Get all out and .
Most unwise is to free/ cut the points to which that boot board is hanging.
Now you can't Move the key to open the boot
to fix any rear lock problem. This problem is not the lock mostly (unless you already tried lubing that lock) but the cable coming from front drivers side that unlatches from the inside. It neds to be made moveable again.
Crawling in is a bit dificult to do so.
If only the handle is broken at drivers side, get access at that point by removing the seat (4 bolts I think, Have to shift that seat a bit to retract all four) Try to get now to that mechanism there and fix or replace what is broken. I doubt that the cable itself to the rear is broken.
If that car is in good shape, undoubtedly (only 2001) better have a mechanic at a dealer do it the fastest cheap way, since he has the fastest trick and the original part. If kept well these cars are to last 200.000 miles and 15 years easily. If you maintain them properly. Before becoming an independent brand, KIA has been an outstanding assembling contractor for bigger brands on the market.
So don't break anything you regret later.
Mostly these problems arise from not greasing, lubricating and cleaning the mechanisme.

U need the special wrench to lower the spare, there is no other way since the cable hoist is under the spare tire.
