How do you get back into the trunk of a 1984 300SD? Neither key works. When you turn it to unlock it, nothing happens. It's almost as if something is jammed against it inside. Is there a way to get into it? What do they charge to replace the lock?

trunk lock

I got a 79 this week and it has the same issue. Did you have any luck with yours? I fished around with the key in the lock and eventually it opened, but I don't know if it will again. There was a rod coming out of the lock and heading towards the drivers side. It would move with the lock, but I couldn't tell what it was doing.

If you look at the key slot on the trunk: if the slot is vertical, it's locked- if the slot is horizontal, it's unlocked but may still be locked due to the vacuum locks. Take the key and turn it to the left past horizontal and hold it, then push the button- the trunk should open.

Hope this helps.
