Remouve rear seat crawel In trunk unbolt hydralic rams,hand turn wormgear hold downs & push up deck lid.


Another option has come up. Remove cap-screws located at the back of the rear wheel-wells (one on each side). This releases the mounts for the hydraulic locks inside trunk. We were able to life trunk lid from there. Thank you for your help.
