When I saw this question, being so specific with make and model year, I thought it was strange. I also have a 1995 Chevrolet Corsica. 3 days ago my wife went to open the trunk with the key and the key simply would not turn. I tried using WD40 but could not get it to turn. I finally had to lift up on the outside of the rear seat inside the vehicle and climb through the opening behind the rear seat. I had to bend forward the corner of the seat enough to get through. Once I did this I just had to turn the latch counterclockwise with a screwdriver to get it to open. I did not realize this at first, so I simply removed the two 7/32" hex head screws that hold on the latching mechanism. This got the trunk open. I haven't had time yet to figure out how to replace the actual trunk lock.

I'd like to add to this question that we had a broken lock on a 1995 Chevy Corsica as well. The outside lock was removed (not sure if it was intentional or accidental). In order to get in the trunk we can use an opened (unfolded) nail clipper and insert the single flat edge into the small hole that's in the center of the lock. (Peer in to get a good view.) You turn the nail clipper (I believe clockwise) and the trunk pops open easily. (I suppose you could use a small flat head or small pocket knife as well - but we've always had fast, quick access with a nail clipper.) The downside is that anyone who knows how to open a trunk this way can access your trunk.
