it makes a little noise-I don't think it's a broken latch, I think somehing may be stuck on/in the latch-unfortunatelyy when I went to close it, it was open a little and I pushed it shut without thinking that the reason it was open is because something was blocking the latch.
I don't know if I have fold down rear seats though it does look like there is a pass through behind the armrest.
How nice for you!! I will check that out a little later-there is also a skinny kid across the street that might be able to crawl through if there is no glow in the dark emergency trunk release handle. I will let you know if that works. I sure wish I didn't have so much crap in it! I haven't checked the owners manual yet either (shame on me) to see if the seats fold down but there definately is a a pass through .
This happened once before but because the lid was not quite closed, I was able to pull out my purse strap which was blocking the latch.
I will let you know how it eventuates and will certainly be more mindful in the future.
Eureka-!I finally got it open. I slid a piece of cardbboard underneath the trunk lid in an effort to clear the latch area and was able to pull a thread that was hanging outside the car which moved the throw pillow that was in the trunk and got it cleared (I was bringing some stuff over to Goodwill and a throw pillow apparently fell out of the bag and one of the tassels got stuck in the latch).
Also, it appears that whomever owned the car prior to me, had the pass-through welded shut so skinny kid wouldn't have worked. (My smart ass kid said it probably would have opened right away if I pulled out my check book).
Thanks for your help-have a lovely day!!
