Your trunk's lock cylinders inner rod may be disconnected, or cylinder itself is loose. These rods are held by plastic retainers, they sometimes pop out. Inspect the lock for this and reconnect.

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

Trunk is stuck, key cylinder in horizontal position.


There should be an emergency pull somewhere that opens it from the inside.

Trunk won't open


Lower the back seat and crawl into the trunk and see what the latch is doing when you activate the key fob. the trunk lid will have to be open to enable any repairs. Also an emergency release cable is probably visible (yellow handle) inside the trunk and will Open the trunk lid.

Trunk won't open


First, if it does need an actuator, you can save some money on labor getting it done at an idependent aftermarket shop rather than the dealer. Yes, the part will most likely have to come from the dealer, but let the shop deal with that. You do not have to pay dealership labor rates. It would pay to shop around.

Second, before any parts are purchaced, the actual CAUSE of the problem needs to be verified. Unfortunately, the ONLY way to do that is to get the trunk lid open and inspect the trunk lid latch components. If none of the three methods provided by the manufacturer for opening the trunk in a normal fashion will work, the trunk will have to be accessed by removing the back seat. Once the back seat is removed, a technician can reach into the trunk and remove the bolts that secure the trunk latch to get the trunk open. The latch parts can then be accessed to disassemble, inspect, and repair accordingly.

Please note that this is the ONLY way to do this without causing further damage to the vehicle. DO NOT allow anyone to attempt getting into the trunk any other way! (Do not use pry bars or screwdrivers on the trunk lid, key tumblers, etc..)

The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

The trunk of my 1994 Toyota Camry will not open. The lock is in a horizontal position. Will not open with lever next to driver's seat. What can I do?


So the problem is the cylinder for the key will not turn and disengage the lock nor does the driver side release lever.

I recommend bringing the vehicle to a repair shop. This repair procedure is tricky and whom ever gets the job has to remove the rear seats to get into the trunk to get the trunk open.

98 celica convertible key question


Is the key that you have a genuine Toyota key? If so, is the key Black or Grey? If you have the grey key, you only have the "valet" key, and it will not do what you want. You need the Black key. Put the black key in the trunk and turn it 90 degrees & remove it. This controls the inside lever on/off for the trunk. The key hole will either be horizontal or verticle. One way lets the inside lever work, the other position stops it.
