Emergency Trunk Release Boxster 2000

My girlfriend closed the rear trunk on wine bottle, denting the back trunk and jamming the trunk. The trunk release wire broke. Where is the emergency release wire. The dealer told us that they had to remove the back bumper and it was going to be 1000 dollars in all to run a new cable and get the wine out of the trunk. At the very least we would like to get the wine out of the trunk.

The release cable is behind the rear bumper on the nearside below the tail lamp. if you remove the inner arch liner and heatshield for exhaust enough to get your hand up there to reach and pull wire as you cant remove bumper without openingthe boot.

How do I replace the rear trunk lid lock actuator on a 2002 porsche boxster


Incorrect. There is an emergency release cable that can be operated manually but will most likely require removal of the rear bumper and is located on the nearside (left side) of the rear bumper.

Access rear trunk release cable


This happened to me too on my Porsche Boxter S 2004 - the actuator is working, the battery is charged - but the rear trunk won't open from the key fob or the inside release.

I removed the driver's side rear tire, I removed one nut from the wheel well cover closest to the back of the car, I looked inside and saw a cable. The wheel well cover could be pulled back enough to fit my hand in, so I reached in and pulled - the tunk popped open.

The problem is that my primary rear trunk release cable is broken - still need to fix that problem - but the trunk is open.
