That happened to me with my brothers 78 5000 about 16 years ago. I took
a drill with a very large bit and drilled right thru the center of the
lock. Then I used a large screwdriver and inserted it in the hole
and popped the trunk open. I go another lock and had it rekeyed.
This was very drastic but I got the trunk open.
