Simply flip this small metal latch, and the lock to the release lever will be disengaged. Pull the release and voila, your trunk pops open!

The latch is held on with bolts. The key cylinder should have a flat, spring metal U clip that slides around the cylinder to hold it tight in the hole.

The latch should be adjustable-it's not catching.
