You should be able to enter your trunk through the back seat. The backrest should lay down. If you don't have the feature, you might have a ski bag in the arm rest. It's detachable and you can reach through there. Usually there is a emergency release to open the trunk. If everything is not working and you don't want to spend money at a dealer, hit a flathead screwdriver in the lock and turn it with a plyer. Of course you'll need a new lock after that. But I'd go with the dealer.


I think there should be a trunk release. Check your owners manual.
