Went to get something out of the bag the other day, I reached under the trunk to lift / pull the lever and something sounded like it popped or snaped and now I cannot get inside either bag or the trunk. Anyone know where I should start looking first. I am sure it's just one of the cables. Maybe take off the lower trim piece under the trunk and start there?????

Not sure, need help.. I have it for sale and need to get it fixed ASAP.

Take off the lower cover Randy, and you will see the cables. You should be able to pop the lids by pulling the inner cables for each one.

Look inside your trunk on the side of the offending saddlebag. Roughly 3/4 of the way towards the front of the trunk you will see a fairly large diameter rubber 'filler plug' on the bottom of the trunk.

Remove that and you will see a 'plunger' that you push down on to open the offending saddlebag.


I did some scrounging around and found some photos to help you ....

this is the 'filler plug' location







and this is the 'plunger', beneath the filler plug, that will open the saddlebag. ....





\

Once you get the saddlebags open, you can then check out the cable by removing it from the saddlebag

He'll have to get a wire coat hanger and hook it up underneath the panel where the latches are and hook onto the latch bar and pull down to open the trunk.

It's described HERE

Can't use that method as there is a CD changer in the way...

You should be able to get the saddlebags open once you remove the lower trunk cover. Unhook the cables and pull on them and the saddlebags will open.

On my 96 aspy if you put your key in the trunk and turn it to the left (counter clockwise) it should open your trunk. Hal
