Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer
I do not believe you have access to the mechanism inside the back of the car to operate it from the back seat or the trunk. I believe the access to the mechanism is through the back seat panels and not through the trunk covers in the back. If the cable broke at the lever under the seat , you may be able to unscrew/bolt the lever holder and grab the end of the wire with a pliers and open the door. If you have an old credit card or stiff poster board you may be able to slide it into the opening side of the door to push the angle pin that locks it closed to open the door. Typically the angled pin locks into a slot in the door. The slot in the door is like a long tab. If you place a piece of card board over the paint and gently push a flat blade screw driver into the gap you can gently pry/bend the tab enough to open the door. If the tab is bent you can leave it that way so you can open the door by hand until you replace the cable. Then after replacing the cable , just bend the tab back so the door locks again. Most gas doors have locks just to keep honest people honest.
