HAHA!!! that is SO funny you brought this up. I was at a JY in hawaii once gettin SOMETHING outa the trunk for my cutlass...but of course the trunk was locked...and no keys, and as most of you know...there is no passthrough. So what did I do? I took my cordless drill (that I just happen to bring) took a full 1/4 inch drill bit, stuck it right in the lock cylinder...after about 30 secs of drilling, i removed the bit, stuck a screw driver in and opened the lock mechanism with the flat edge hole..and HAH! I WAS IN MAN! god that was fun.. It was a perfect car when I got to it...really was sad, perfect interior, perfect engine...it only went there cause the guy died...but after it met me it was no longer in good condition. It lost a radio, trunk lock , cabin comfort control, glove box latch, window motor, int door handle, gear selector, power steering pump, and a couple other things...and I got out of there with all of it ...for free

WHOA....

None of the people above have ever done this....or they'd know the easiest way. And if you are honestly suggesting these things, because you'd do it that way...shame on you.

Eric..
Bring a 6-8 inch long screwdriver with you. Put the blade in the hole and looking in w/flashlight if necessary... slide it into the slit on the popper motor where the lock used to be. Turn clockwise.

Yes..it'* really that simple. The harder part is getting the cylinder out..

Last year I found a 99SSEi with a good power antenna at the wrecker in the same situation. I simply removed the back seat and went into the trunk to manually pop the latch from the inside. Took about 5 minutes.

The elderly couple removing the mudflaps from a toyota next to me didn't know I was in the trunk. When it popped open, and I popped out, they nearly died of heart attacks.

In the "hood" it'* done with a screwdriver and hammer. Only thing you mess up is the lock. Plus..ever see the silly little clip a lock is held in with...
