2003 Lexus LS430 Question: How do I unlock a jammed trunk

 

Question

Visitor, 4.3L V8, Woodbridge, VA, February 23, 2011, 20:33

Inserted a car seat and stroller in trunk of my 2003 LEXUS LS 430. The trunk is now jammed and I cannot unlock it with the key, interior unlock near the steering wheel or the inside latch on the trunk.

    Is there any way to fold down the rear seats? That may be one angle - crawling in that way could be possible. Otherwise, it will take some force and you may risk some damage. I recommend perhaps visiting a local body shop for some advice?

    If the items inside the trunk are compacted down because the lid was slammed down it may just need to be pushed down at latch area from the outside while turning key, is in a bind?
