trunk jammed shut....

hey guys..... i drive a 2000 SE, and when i bought it the trunk was jammed shut. ive tried almost everything to get it open. my question is, is there a pin or a latch that i can get to from the inside of the car to flip up the seats? its pissin me off.... i got a damn dehumidifier in the trunk, whenever i turn a corner it clunks around. well thanks

flip the rear bench up then fold the backrest down, from there use a flashlight to figure whats wrong with the lock mechanism, could just be a broken/unhooked cable

the backrest doesnt fold down... i need to know how to make it fold down. if i were inside the trunk i culd pull the T handle to make it flip down, but since my trunk is jammed shut my only other way to get at my trunk is thru the back seats.
