laptop stuck in trunk!

I can't open trunk on a mid 80's 300 SD. Key turns the lock but nothing happens...for a short term fix, does anyone know if you can get to the trunk from the back seats?

This is my brother's car who is out of town and I don't want to kill it...

Any help would be great. I am lost without my laptop come morning!

If it were me, I'd either just call a locksmith to come out to the car or the MB dealership (for their opinion what to do). Do you have a AAA insurance membership? I believe they also provide that service...

I assume by now you already opened the trunk, I would suggest in stead of just turning the key in the lock, push the lock. on most models the key just sets the locked or unlocked position and "pushing" the lock actually triggers the mechanism to open it!

Good luck!
