How to open a stuck buttress & stuck trunk video

Thanks to Redline AutoParts for shooting a video showing how to open a stuck buttress and how to go through the wheel well to pull the trunk release handle.

Although I have that tool..always keep it in your glove compartment....there is a better mousetrap. I am not home and do not have pics ...but if u tie a piece of cord around the lever/spring that opens the buttress in the trunk...and just pull it through the back wall to the rear of your drivers seat...u can always pull it and it releases the buttresses...the string is hidden behind the driver's seat. That was how we did it...the good ole days.

No need to take off your wheel well to access the emergency cable.
