    stuck trunk.

    I just got home from a long trip, dropped off my girlfriend and took all her stuff out of the trunk and it worked fine. got home to my house and went to open the trunk to get my stuff out and its stuck. i pull the latch inside and it wont open. the guy 2 owners ago replaced the lid with a new one and didnt get a matching lock, so you cant open it using the ignition key. the only way to get in is to use the latch inside.
    i cant get into it thru the back seat hole thing cause i've got a sub in front of it, and i cant push it out of the way because my backpacking pack is infront of it.....
    any suggestions?

    This happened to me once. I had to remove the back seat, remove the sub, move stuff, then put the latch switch in the correct position.

    so removing the backseat does actually let you get into the rear? i thought there was a metal divider between the two...

    Try looking for a video on how to install a rear strut tower bar.
    The fuel pump video I posted a min ago (and removed) didn't remove the back part of the seat.

    Edit: here's the fuel pump video I posted, it's a start

    Anyway, there are two black bars that also need to be removed (to get a large sub box out), but not a full plate that blocks access.
