if you insert the key in the lock and turn it alittle further the boot should open.the noise you hear is the actuator moving,but the plastic rod to open the boot is probably brocken.

SOURCE: VW Jetta 2003 1.9 TDI trunk does not want to open with remote

It is your wiring coming out of the trunk on the left side. One of the wire are cut because in cold weather when you open the trunk, wire can't move easily in the plastic tube. Sorry for my english.

Cannot open trunk of 1994 audi cabriolet

There is a key over ride position if your boot becomes locked due to electrical failures you have to turn the key in the boot lock that bit further then push in the barrel.

Picture the slot position something like ten past eight rather than 6 oclock or five past seven

There is no sound when I press my trunk button on my vw keys. Also the trunk is seized. I cannot turn the key to open the trunk. I would like to fix the lock. How do i do it?

the motor for the lock actuator is most likely seized. you will need to try spraying PB blaster (tm) into the lock cylinder and letting it sit for a few minutes and then try the key (I wouldn't force it) if that does not work you need to get into the trunk and disengage the lock from the actuator. and then the key should move the lock freely...

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 1998 audi cabriolet. is there a way to open the trunk from the inside of the car without the keys?

I would call the dealership and explain your situation and they might be able to make you a valet key based on the vin# with proof of ownership.

87 fiero trunk key will turn but wont unlock the trunk. any way to open the trunk without destroying it ? thanks Jerry

I'm assuming you don't have the electric latch...Since the key is turning, the piece of metal that connects the lock with the latching mechanism probably came off on the other end. You are going to have to destroy the lock. You can do that without hurting the rest of the car though. Drill it out so you can remove the locks internal pieces and stick a long regular screw driver in and turn the latch. The Fiero Store sells new locks.
