Hi just in some need of help for opening up my trunk.

Ok frist I have the key for the trunk but i can not open the trunk with the key. The lock its self turns but the latches that physically open the trunk are rusted so if i try and use the key it starts to bend and will break..

Ive cut a whole big enough for me to fit through in the back seats of the car..

am i able to dismantle the latch from inside the trunk and to and pop it open that way? there are about 4 bolts ( i think) there if i take them all off will that give me access to manualy open the trunk with my hands?

Easiest would have been to drill out the trunk lock from the outside.

you could hit the latch from the outside with a screwdriver and open it. I had to do this with my first e30 as there was no keys when I got it.
