In this post we'll cover:
Method 1: Opening a Trunk with a Screwdriver from InsideFirst, you have to open the car to open the trunk from inside. If your car is locked then you have to use the screwdriver to open it first and then you can use the same screwdriver to open the trunk
7 Steps to Open a Trunk
Step 1: Open the Car DoorWedge the door and the frame apart inserting the screwdriver. It is better to insert the screwdriver from a safe distance of the hinges so that the door of the car or the locking mechanism doesn’t get damaged.
Step 2: Get Into the Car
Step 3: Push the Car’s Front Seat Forward
Step 4: Remove the Back Seat
Step 5: Crawl Inside the TrunkCrawl inside the trunk and shed some light using a flashlight. If you don’t have a flashlight, don’t worry – use the flashlight of your phone to shed light.
Step 6: Locate the Metal Bar
Step 7: Turn the Box ClockwiseYou can access the box using the screwdriver. Turn the box clockwise to open it and the work is complete – the trunk is open. Now return everything to the original placement and come out.
Method 2: Opening a Trunk With a Screwdriver from OutsideUse the screwdriver to try and pry opening the trunk’s lock by wedging your way left and right. Do it until the trunk is opened. This method needs a lot of patience and the success rate is also very low. On the other hand, the possibility of damaging the trunk by applying this method is very high. Your screwdriver may break and you may also get hurt.
Final WordsUsing the right screwdriver is very important. So, before heading to the operation check the head of the screwdriver. According to my opinion, it is better to avoid the second method and choose the first one. If you cannot do the first method better take help from the professional. When there is no other path open to you except choosing the second method only then I will suggest you choose the second method. But you must be very careful.
