Before the key will come out of the lock.

The Keyway should be in the vertical position, the same position it was in when

the key was put into the lock.


Be very careful not to damage the dust shutter door

at the entrance to the keyway.

It is held in place by a small hinge pin and spring.

If it breaks, remove the parts from the keyway.

Where is trunk release in Pontiac fiero?

The rear "trunk" (decklid) release mechanism is an option, if equipped, and is located on the right side of the dash protrusion on the dash. It will be a switch that shows an opening "trunk". If this switch is not there, then the car was not equipped with rear trunk release. If you are trying to get into a Fiero trunk that does not have a decklid release mechanism or a broken one, and you have lost the keys, then you will have to actually break into the car to open the trunk. Typically, if the outer key switch is remove, you can insert a long screwdriver into the hole and pop the trunk lock.

How can you get into your trunk of your 1993 Lexus ls 400 without remote or the master key the car is not locked but the trunk lever will not open?

I came across this problem. There is a lock below the steering wheel that will cause the trunk lever to disengage when it is pushed in. Use the master key to turn the lock (located below the steering wheel). It must be the master key. Without the master key you will need to remove the lock (located below the steering wheel). Good luck.

Remove the door panel, retrieve the lock and put it back in its retainer. Check the lock handle to see if the plastic is broken as most locks falling inside the door actually occur because someone has punched the lock in an attempt to break in.
