Another day, another freaking problem!!
I am about to take a sledge hammer to this car (74 230)just to release my frustration with it. I finally got the idle issue resolved, the AC fixed, the blinkers fixed, etc. now only to have the trunk stuck in the locked position. Every time I fix one problems, another one pops up. I am very familiar with car restoration as I have restored probably close to a 100 cars of the past 35 years but this one is about to cause me to throw in the towel.
I can turn the key and actually hear it click if I put pressure on the lid but the trunk will not open. It is totally stuck with no signs of releasing.
Is the any way to get to the trunk lock/latch in this situation?
