am not sure if you are talking about the right part. if the sensor you are talking about is the one that comes through the center of the dash then that sensor is for the automatic lights. With that sensor in the dash your lights will be on all the time now. To get the sensor you will have to remove all the 7mm screws that are under the dash trim. To remove the dash trim just grab it and pull towards you it is held in with clips. remove radio and cluster and push your hand into centre till you can grab sensor. it is hard to get but will some patience you will win. good luck

I unlocked the boot with the remote then closed

You may be able to open the vehicle using a coat hanger or similar object to push the lock/unlock button. Once you've gained access to the inside of the vehicle, you can push the trunk unlock button on the dash or floor (can't remember which) and it will release the trunk lock so you can retrieve your keys.
