If the latch is missing, what's holding the lid down ? Do you mean there is no tumbler for key? If that's the case, look inside hole for a round part, dead center, with square in middle. Pick a screwdriver that will fit in that square, stick it in there & turn.

91 bmw 525i trunk latch broken @


You can buy the whole lock or the actuator motor as a part
and also the latch receiver
Didnt know this model used a cable release

you might see if the trunk has a seperate fuse if electrical

On that 525 BMW i thought the key should still open the trunk
check with a BMW service division on this next bit
if you can not open the trunk at all
its a locksmith if the key part itself is the cause
or
the rear seat may be able to be removed to get that trunk open

1993 Park Avenue-trunk will latch but not close tight. Several years ago had motor disconnected so you just slam truck and not worry. Now the metal latch-catch is up high and trunk will not shut tight. ...


Find another 91-95 Park Avenue at your local salvage yard...or call on line or contact to reach on-line salvage yards...you can purchase just the latch...(as you know it is designed to be an automatic pull-down...This is an easy switch out...the latch will be $20-45. I have one at home:) Hope this helps.

How to open trunk other than using key. back panel messed up and just got car. need to know a way to open the trunk please


You may be able to remove the back seat to access the interior of the trunk and trip the latch. However, if the body damage is severe enough to keep the key from working, you may need to use more severe means such as a prybar. Be prepared to replace the trunk lid and latch if so. You may also be able to drill or pry the lock mechanism out and release the latch with a straight tip screwdriver, but again, if the damage won't allow the key to work, this probably won't either.

The trunk is stuck closed on my 1999 nissan maxima. the release clicks, but won't work--and the key will not work as well.


I had a similar problem with my 1988 Toyota. You may have to remove the back seat and climb into the trunk through the cab of the vehicle to access the latch mechanism. Once you do this, you can find the problem and address it. My problem was broken clips on the connecting rods from the key to the actual latch. There may be some broken linkage that keeps the key from moving. I hope this helps. FYI don't do it on a hot day!

My 92 eldo cadi trunk won't close it latches but the motor doesn't pull it down to close fully


There is a electric motor on the lower part of the trunk that usually goes bad. Not on the trunk lid but the trunk part. You can remove the assembly and take it apart so you can turn the latch all the way down , Once youy have done this you can put it back in place. Make sure you unplug the motor so it won't go up again, You should be able to use the release button inside.
