stuck trunk lid!!

2000 sedan trunk lid latch has decided to stay in the locked position, key refuses to work, but it makes sound when button is pushed, plan is to take it apart from inside and see if i can get trunk open, then get replacement from scrap yard.
any suggestions? i folded seats down by taking apart the plastic to the side of the back right seat and reaching arm in to disengage.

Sounds like you have the right plan...

I TRY to remember to exercise the key lock once in a while, just so ONE of the releases will always work, but I SELDOM use the key just 'cause the electric openers are so handy....

just replaced the dash button switch 'cause I was tired of cleaning the contacts to keep it working.... (11.36 from Tousley...) Wondered why I waited so long B4 replacement.... Once I priced it.....

Luck!
