-Michael, I'd expect that not to be in a '97 deville; some expensive **** might get damaged in the process. A lot of muscle cramps, too. But if it were a have-to situation, there may be a big enough opening in the trunk framing set-up behind the fabric board (cardboard, like)- insulator, sound deadener stuff, all behind the cushions, you know. It would all have to be removed or pushed aside...I guess it beats a crowbar opening the trunk from the outside? lol.
I had to go into the car from the trunk on a Toyota celica once, when I locked the keys in it. Only took about 20 minutes, but I destroyed the already damaged board backing stuff that the rear cushions set on. My back seat never recovered from that-lol.

The truck lock on my 1991sunfire won't unlock the key turns but nothing happens the release by driver seat won't open either what can I do to fix?


The cable or rod is probably disconnected. Did you try getting in the trunk through your back seat? I can look it up, but a lot of vehicles have some kind of release on the back seat for it to fold down, and it gives entrance to the trunk. I can tell you that those cars are one of the ones I call "A FACTORY LEMON". Sorry, but there are numerous recalls and technical service bulletins on them. If you cannot get through the back seat, I will check more info on that for you.

1990 chevy lumina van lock broken and can't gain entrance to end. Any solutions to open or replace a lock?


Does Lumina sedan have rear seat pass thru to trunk ?? if sedan then a pull tab will be in seat upholstery near shelf / by rear window . pull it crawl in with Light Plus friend on outside to hand tools .. IF VAN must remove interior panels to gain access .. Try small thin needle nose pliers to pick broken KEY Piece out of lock 1 ST . if successful spray in Lubricant before trying another key . BUT must be reason lock jammed -- Frozen by weather change or Mechanism Disconnected due to lack of lubrication or worse Plastic Parts used in assembly by Factory .. DRILLING Lock Out will get it Open but new / used parts to repair are now on your shopping list ..

How do you get a 2000 dodge neon trunk open when the key won't work? No button in glove box.


The only other way I can think of is to remove the back seat to gain access to the trunk latch.
Otherwise, a locksmith would be my next solution.

On the Jetta 2000 TDI, does the back seat flip down, enabling access from the trunk? Like a hatch back, I mean/.


Yup - each seat has a latch and you can gain access to the trunk... the seats can fold flat if you take off the headrests

This has been good for me since sometimes my trunk key or automatic opener doesn't work and I need to access the trunk from the car
