Customer Question

Is there an override for opening the trunk on a 2009 Beetle Conv? Neither door release nor key fob work. Lights flash but latch does not click/release.

There should be a pull handle on the inside trim panel to release the latch- unfortunately, to access the trunk through the back seats, you have to remove the lower seat cushion, and then remove a couple of bolts that will then allow the seat back piece to slide upward. Then you can access through one of the small ports there.
