Re: Failure of trunk lock

Here's a drastic method I used on a 4000 in a junkyard, which had a 
thuroughly molested lock (Yes, the trunk is very secure).
1. Bust a tail light, take out a big chunk.
2. Push the backing (with the wires and bulbs) off, so you can reuse it.
3. Reach in and carefully unscrew the frame of the light, remove it 
and don't drop your tools. Five small nuts, I used an electic 
screwdriver. If you have really skinny arms, maybe you can skip this.
4. Reach way in and trigger the latch.

It would certainly help to take close look at the nuts and the latch 
on another car, so you don't spend too much time fumbling in the dark.
Good luck-Brian
