What part of the lock is not working? Is the key going in and turning as per normal, if yes that means the little lever arm is not tripping the lock mechanism.

The actual lock is not that securly held in place, it has a slip on collar with two prongs that open up when placed through the boot panel, they stick out about 3  mm each side, so its not far but effective enough to hold everything in place.

I would keep wiggleing the lock to try and pry it out, you may end up with a small amount of panel damage from the prongs but it would still be less than cutting a hole.

I have my boot without the lock in place at present and open by putting my pinky in the hole to trip the mechanism. Hope this helps. Tony H.
