the US models have a trunk release handle so should the UK models bare with me please

ok my info will not load because the file is to large.

Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

if you can gain access to the trunk then you will have to manually remove the trunk liner on the lid and manually release the cable to open then replace the actuator .

federal laws here in the states mandate the placement of these emergency release cables and latches/

Uk models don't have a Manual release
Expert:  MASTER TECH replied 1 year ago.

right so the only way to get it open is to remove the lid trunk liner and manually move the cable to the unlock the trunk
