So I've looked around on here at some of the posts for this problem, tried hooking the bar and unlatching it with no success. Recently had it apart to replace the lights on the side of the trunk, put it together again, took it around the block, and the trunk won't open. I can't get the seatback off to cut into the trunk, and most of the links in previous posts are disabled or deleted it seems. Anyone have any ideas? As it stands I'll be trying the same thing tomorrow, maybe even getting a thicker wire to try, but I'm at a loss for what to try next otherwise. Thanks for the help!
