Hi everyone - I am a new owner of a 1974 1/2 JH and a new member of this board.

Here's my question: days after i brought it home the trunk lock stopped working - the key just turns but doesn't unlatch the lock. I know from searching on the Internet that one solution is drilling a hole by the back license plate and sticking something thru it. Well the car already had this hole but so far I have had no luck. Some of the additional advice I saw was that it's helpful to be able to visualize the lock mech as you attempt this. Unfortunately i never really looked at it before this happened since i only owned it for a few days.

Anyone have experience with this situation and can give me some pointers?

Thanks, Dan Carlsen
