I have a Volvo 940GL (1992 model year). I have recently locked the\ntrunk\n(horizontal key position so it is not on central locking system). Now\nthe key will\nnot turn in the socket and the trunk is of course locked for good.\nI found one reference on the net for a similar problem, suggesting\nthat the latch for\nthe trunk lock got stuck. They said the thing to do was to go through\nthe ski hutch\nand remove plastic panel that covers the latch, then unscrew the\nlatch.\n\nSo far, I have made proper length extenders for my screw and socket\nbits, and I\nunscrewed all the screws I could see (for on the bottom panel and six\non the top\npanel). Unfortunately, neither panel budges at all when I tug on them.\n\nCan anyone describe in detail how to remove the lock mechanism in the\ntrunk\nof a 1992 940GL. It would be particularly helpful if you had\nsuggestions for how to\ndo this from the ski hutch point of view.\n\nP.S. I went to one mechanic who said he could do nothing and the other\nsaid he\nwas to busy. I need to open the trunk soon so I have no choice but to\ntry on my own.\nPlease do not suggest going to a locksmith or a mechanic.
