Wrong keys or wrong car?. lOL
the cable release won't work if the trunk kew was in lock horizontal position. It needs to be vertical when key is removed. More penetrating fluid and try to force key rocking back and forth in and out. Use lots of wd40 or penetrating fluids and repeat. This will work. Also make sure you are using a master key only. Black top.
I have been trying to get in the trunk of my 1994 Toyota Camry for almost a year now. I kept having different people look at it & was told I would have to take car to a body shop, they would have to take the entire left side quarter panel off or loose & it would be a rather expensive process. I just gave up until now it's time to get it inspected so I really needed to access the trunk. My husband let the bad seats down & crawled into the trunk today. He loosened the trunk lid liner at the back to expose the trunk lock. He then started working with the lock to get it moving. At that point he took the screws out of the inside car trunk release to expose the trunk cable. When he got it moving some, he then removed the entire lock assembly; we found that either a squirrel or maybe a small mouse had been in the trunk chewing acorns. The lock assembly was full of small pieces that was preventing the proper movement. He cleaned it out & added a little graphite. Then he check the lever going from the trunk key lock area to the actual lock & sprayed some WD-40 on it. He tried turning the lock & it moved. He then replaced the lock in the proper place & worked it several times. He then put the inside latch assembly back in the proper place & tried it - it worked. Then we got brave enough to close the trunk--put the key in & turned - it worked! Shut it back & used the inside car lever - it worked. Total Cost - about 3 hours of our time! This may not work for you but it's worth a try!
yes you can no problem their but you may have to cut the back of the seat away ,the metal behind the seat i mean to get enough space to open it with a screwdriver ,what about a a pair of pliers on the remote pull cable ??
i am talking from memory,and i may be wrong........but
look under the front base of the rear seats,you should find 2x screws,undo these and lift the seat squab up and frontwards out the flat possition then you will be able to find the screws that hold the backrest in possition and remove....
If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk.
