is there a quick easy way to open the trunk when the remote will not work, nor will the trunk release switch inside the car. I have already tried going through the backseat and turning the manual relese. the motor runs but it will not release! it there anyway to use the key to open the trunk of a 2008 vw new beetle convertible? the wires all seem to be connected.
