Default Cant open trunk

I have an issue where my trunk will not open on my 2007 Camry hybrid. You can hear the latch activate by the outside handle or the cable lever alongside the drivers seat but the trunk will not budge. I did get the rear seats down but the access hole is way too small to get through (because of the batteries). Even DCH Toyota doesn't know what to do. There must be a solution / procedure. Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for any help

Can you look into the trunk from the passengers side and see the emergency handle release? If so, fabricate a rod, pole, stick, coat hanger, etc to grab the handle and pull it.

there might be something stock on it, I don't think its because of the battery try to look further.

You seem to be in the same boat as myself except I donít have a hybrid. You probably need a new latch. How did you get your seats to fold down? My seat fold down is in the trunk itself so Iím kinda of stuck.

Can you take a photo of where this would be so I could try myself to get to the release?

95 Camry LE 205000


This is not something I normally suggest but during a bad winter my key locks were not working. I knew they had issues and needed replacing.

In the interim pulled and banded on it with my first and being careful not to damage car it opened

Non electrical issue and wound up replacing drivers, passenger, ignition an d trunk as a set.
