the trunk won't open

Asked by Mar 14, 2014 at 07:32 PM about the Volvo S40

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is there a way to open the trunk other than the inside button?

4 Answers


If your back seats fold forward, you can crawl into the trunk and there should be a safety exit latch or something to open it. On the back of your trunk there is no key hole?

Were is the button on 2003 Volvo to open the trunk. Bought it from an auction they didn't have the key, the ignition key doesn't fit. Please advise


Try putting the key into the drivers side door and turn it clockwise twice. If that doesn't release the trunk, try doing it counter clockwise. Post back with results, thanks!

I still can't get in the trunk, I took the advice given but nothing happen
