if you have a pass though in the back seat, open it. look in the trunk area with a flashlight for the trunk release up above. it is a glow in the dark handle.

pull back seat out- crawl in thru interior- will be pull cable right by trunk lock.... owners manual will show procedure. if necessary i can fax you picture off my alldata. I own a transmission shop and have that software program. craig burnett ... am in oklahoma.

There is a switch in the glove compartment that may be switched over to valet parking . If it is your trunk will not open.

I took mine to a cad dealer lin san diego and they used rod thru back seat to open. When i got back home and looked on internet and the told me about valet switch in glove compartment. I must have hit it accidentally. three service people at cad never mentioned that at all. By the way when the valet switch is on your garge door opener will not work. So much for the experts. Jerry, mark etc thank you much. It would be to long story to tell you what i went through to get clothes out throght little hole in back seat. Thanks again. one more time the internet is a powerful tool with a lot of very smart people. Bill SAn Diego
