If you are talking about the spare tire compartment or the CD changer compartment all you do is press down on the black enlongated button on top of each compartment. Some times, one of the two latching mechanisms under the compartment will slide on top of the receiving end while the other will slide under where it is suposed to and lock the compartment (this is possible because the two latches are independent from each other. the button simply presses down on both at the same time). Since one of the latches is sitting on top of its receiving end it will be impossible to press down on button.If this is the case with your car, you will have to carefully force the cover off by applying a lifting and pulling away force on the cover while at the same time pressing down on the button so that when latch that went on top will free itself and the other will be able to go down and unlock the compartment.

Now, once you are able to free the door open you may make some adjustment so this will not happen again.To begin, go ahead and operate the button while the door is removed so you may see how it works. Notice how the two latches are independent of each other but the same button presses down both of them down.The cause of the problem is that one of the latches aproaches the receiving end at too high an angle and thus missing the receiving end slide ramp on one side. In order fix this you need to slightly twist the latching mechanism down(made of about a 1/4 inch thick rod) so that when it aproaches the slide ramp it will be low enough as to not miss it and end up on top again.You can twist the rod with two cressent wrenches. One to hold each end of the rod so you can try and twist it. Be carefull and good luck.
