when i bought the car it didnt open i figure i could figure out something, but i tried the ignition key didnt unlock it took the handle off thinking i could pop it open and that didnt work do you think if i buy a replacement handle with the lock i will be able to unlock and open it?
Most likely, the bottom parts are broken and it's hanging on the lock. If it's not locked, a hard upward pull will open it. But the fun part is that the whole thing will fall down to the back up straps almost to the floor. My E30 has been like that since I got it
