OK, let's assume you can get through the hole from the back seat. And, let's assume there isn't some heavy stuff in the way that won't fit through that hole so you can get a clear access to the lock mechanism. Now, once you get there with your trusty flashlight, you will be faced with this. The only possible way to get the lock to turn loose will be to take the two bolts out using a 1/2" socket. But, will that do it? Even if it did, and you managed to get the lock to turn loose, you still either have to have a locksmith make you a new key, or replace the mechanism with a new key. Why not save all that back breaking and frustrating experience, and just have a locksmith do the job from the get-go?
Yeah, I thought about the needle nosed pliers later after looking at it again. But, again....even after he gets it open, he still has to replace the lock mechanism. Oh well, I guess that would be cheaper than hiring a locksmith. You are a smart man Charles. I still don't think your 200 pound frame will fit through that hole.
OK you skinny kids. Just hope the trunk isn't full of tools and replacement parts like mine.
thats exactly why im trying to get into my trunk, someone told me to slide up the back seat, and unscrew the panel, dont know if it works, but im going to try it in the morning, its not easy being 14, and loosing the keys to your car...
yeah you can lift the back of the seat of and try to get in there...you might just use a long socket and extension and unbolt the actual lock from the trunk and be able to open it..then go get keys made they are like 3$ each :P
After you suck up this life lesson, the Classic Mustangs had a really nifty option that I've often entertained but never pulled the trigger on. Remote trunk opener.
Ive been debating, and that was my plan, to put in an electric opener, the damn keys got stolen, but i didnt have the door handles on yet, so i just pulled up on the rod, in the door, and got in, i just have all my parts in the trunk, except for the bumpers and trip, but still, my uncle has electric openers on his 49 chevy truck, and i figured i would get him to hook me up,
