You may be able to trip the mechanism through one ( or both ) of the number plate lights, have you ever seen the mechanism, it helps if you have a mental picture of what your trying to trip.

I have had a phobia of this happening to me also, so I have fitted a cable operated boot release, it goes from under the drivers seat on the RHS, into the boot and into the boot lid, where it connects to the part of the mechanism that must be tripped. If you need to get a picture of the lock apart I could post some photos.

If the key turns but no trip then the screw that holds the lever has come loose, its going to be tricky to get it open. Tony H.
