Question about 2008 Volvo S40

1 Answer

Hi, I bougth my new Volvo S40 in 2008 and never had any problem since then. Today, I found that I can not open the trunk, although the rest of the doors open fine. The central locking systems works fine for the rest of the door. Is there any way I can manually open the trunk?

If it is the same as the 2007 model.
The top of the key is a small slide switch.
You slide it and pull a vanity key out.If the glovebox has been locked it also possibly locks the boot with the same switch.
You will probably need to put key in glovebox lock and turn counter clockwise.
That key is to lock the seats to stop anyone getting into the boot via the fold down system as well.

Hope this helps.

I do have a volvo S70 yeat 98. The trunk dont close it seems to got locked up; i tryed to fix it anf the only lock I found its for the seats. Csn sny onr hrlp me how to fix it mysrlf?


This is a diagram of the lock assembly in the trunk lid. The highlighted area shows the lock in the open position. If you look at your lock assembly and it doesn't look like this, it may be in the locked position causing the trunk to not close. use the trunk key and turn the lock cylinder. You may have to use a screwdriver to gently pull on the lock hasp while using the key to unlock. If the hasp is in the locked position, it should open and allow the trunk to close properly

How to get into Volvo s80 trunk


If you can get in the rear doors (?) the driver side comes down and you will have access albeit a small space to find keys, use a flashlight and if you have a 10 yr old around they can slip in and back out of the trunk although this is a last ditch effort. get a tool with magnet on the end and sweep the trunk until you locate the keys

Handle wont open driver door from indside this morning on my 02


Volvo uses electrical locking system. Sounds like some microswitch is about to fail. Another probable cause can be malfunctioning anti-theft device which bolts the doors so, that they cannot be opened from the inside. Get it checked.
