Is there another way to open the broken trunk on a 93' 240 SX SE?

First, are you sure it's broken? My trunk wouldn't open when I pulled the lever on the inside, but opens when you put the key in the lock. I read my manual and it said their is a little metal thing on the inside of the trunk below the locking mechanism that you can slide that locks and unlocks the trunk. this fixed my problem. The guy who I bought it from said it was broken, not any more
