Try to apply pressure from the top of the trunk and push short burst while using the key, If this doese not work you can try to enter from the rear seat taking out the bolts for the rear back rest.

SOURCE: Trunk wont open where is emergency switch inside trunk

I had the same problem as you. Take out the back seat and there is a large access hole to the interior. There are two bolts that are fairly easy to get to. Remove them and the truck latch is removed from the lid and trunk will open.

SOURCE: my lever wont open my gas door....help i

Hello. Here is what I need you to do:

Have someone pull the gas door release. With a credit card, or something like it, popsicle stick, nail file, etc, insert it at the side of the door that opens, not the hinged side. While your assistant is pulling the lever, see if you can manually pull the door open. If it opens, you have a broken fuel door spring. Toyota parts depts sell them for 3 dollars. The spring is there to "pop" the door open, when you pull the lever. If it is broken, and they break rather often, it needs replaced.

SOURCE: 97 toyota camry trunk latch is stuck not allowing

I have the same problem. I've found that if you push down on the trunk lid very firmly eventually the latch settles in and will open with the pull lever next to the drivers seat. I usually pull up and push down to mimic the closing motion in a firm manner and after a few tries this allows me to open it up. Consequently, I've begun to close the trunk lid with some force, slam it if you will, and this seems to prevent this from happening. I've lubed the latch with no success either. Just a Band Aid solution, not an actual fix.

How to repair 2007 corolla gas and trunk release lever?


This is a simple cable operated door. If its stuck shut you will have fool with it a bit to get it to open or you can somtimes remove the truck liner and access the back of the cable and latch pin. It just clips in and can be removed and cleaned/lubricated to prevent it from sticking. Check for smooth operation by moving the lever in the car while the latch is removed.

My 1997 toyota camry trunk will not open all of a sudden will not open with the key or trunk lever. what do i do ?


Hi! Chances are the clip that holds the rod on the lock has broken, the only thing left to do is to remove the rear lower seat cushion first and then the upper cushion if its not a fold down seat, and reach for the emergency latch inside the trunk. Good luck!

Help how do i change the license plate bulb on my 2004 corolla?


I just replaced my 2 bulbs an hour ago in my garage.
1. Pry off all the clips that hold the liner. I used a cloth covered spatula, so
as not to chip the paint, to pull out the liner a little bit and used my
index and middle finger to pull back the clip and the liner, very slowly to
prevent breakage. When all the clips are off, the liner will fall, no need
to remove the emergency release handle.
2. Press the tiny release lock that hold the wires in the socket and pull
out the wires, carefully.
3. Turn the socket 1/4 the the left carefully, while putting a little pressure
upward, then the socket will release.
4. Pull the bulb staight out and replace it.
5. Reverse the procedure and voila! A ton of money saved!!!!!!
MVC.

How to replace license plate lights


    Follow the Steps on how to replace license plate light on your car.

    1. Open the trunk and locate the trunk liner retainer clips.Use the Phillips head screwdriver to loosen the center plastic screw of the retainer clip about 1/4 turn, just enough to raise the head of the screw from the base of the clip. Pull the screw up, and lift the clip out of the liner. Use a flathead screwdriver to help pry it out. Remove enough of the clips to allow access to the license plate light sockets. Pull the liner back.

    2. Remove the emergency trunk release handle by popping off the top cover of the handle. Use the needle nose pliers to gently squeeze the prongs on the shaft, while removing the handle.

    3. Unplug the wire harness from the license plate light bulb socket the release clip on the side of the outlet.Twist the license plate light bulb socket 1/4 turn counterclockwise, using the needle nose pliers again. Do not apply too much pressure to the pliers; you may damage the socket.

    4. Remove the bulb from the socket, and replace it with a new one.

    5. Replace the socket into the socket assembly, and plug the wire harness back in. Test the bulb by turning on the lights of the Corolla, then turn them off again.

    6. Replace the trunk emergency release handle, and replace the hood liner and the retainer clips. Remove the old bulb and tools, and close the trunk.

Stating boot is open


The car will need a trunk latch micro switch located on the latch itself, You just need to remove the upper trunk liner to access. Then remove the bolts to the latch to loosen. the microswitch is attached to the trunk latch. Be careful not to break the tab that holds the new one in place, it is fragile.

Good luck.

On my 2002 vw jetta the trunk will not open i have tried both the lever on side of door as well as the button on my key i have also crawled into the trunk from the backseat to use the emergency handle...


· There is no motor per say, (a servo that pulls the cable, youd should hear it, every time other then unlocking with key, or pulling inside emergency latch) the cable that connects to the trunk latch mechanism. There is a servo that opens the trunk when you unlock with key fob, or driver side activation. In the trunk pulling on emergency handle, it is pure cable action. One of the most reported problems is that a trunk will not close. In this instance the usual cause is a broke spring in trunk latch. In your case I am guessing that the cable has become detached from locking mechanism. I have not had this problem, however if I did, my first attempt would involve removing the trunk lid linker, there are about 8 or so screws (with felt on them so they are not so noticeable), remove all screws, liner should almost fall off when all screws are removed. I then could inspect latch, manually unlock, then stand outside of care to fix problem: reattach cable, replace latch, replace cable, there may be some other alternatives depending on specific situation.

2004 TOYOTA COROLLA TRUNK


I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
