Answers :

The back seats fold down. there is a seatbelt-like ******** the side near the rear window posts that you'll find on either side, the quickest one to open will be the side with the smaller section to pull out (I believe it is the driver's side).
\015\012OR the plastic key in the glove compartment (valet key) can also be used.
From what i know the only way to enter the trunk is via the key, Ford unfortunately did not think things through when designing this feature. You need a locksmith sorry to say

My 1993 Toyota MR2 trunk lock won't unlock. It is stuck in the 9 o'clock position and will not budge with the key. I've lubricated it and...nothing. I'm thinking the lock needs to be replaced, but in the meantime, I can't open the trunk. The interior trunk latch release has no effect, either. How can I replace the lock if I can't open the trunk?


Use a bunch of penetrating oil / spray like PB Blaster and shoot it into the key hole. It may take a couple days of oiling and moving the key around, but eventually it should break free. You have to do this as often as possible and let the spra ... Toyota MR2

My 1996 maxima has a button on door to pop the trunk... the button still seems to work.. in that it is clicking.... but the trunk will not release and the key itself has not worked in the trunk for a long time....

I have an arm rest in the back seat which does give minimal access to trunk.... if I reached into the trunk with some object is there a way to release the trunk lock manually from the inside?

Pretty inconvenient when your so use to locking the car then having to climb through the trunk to open the car doors lol. Any ideas on a fix?
