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

^^^ that's if the hinge is busted...I think his problem is that it's locked and he doesn't have the key...

You could try drilling out the lock?

I really don't think the key that comes with the replacement latch will work for the old lock.

If no key can unlock it, I guess you still need to remove the old lock and latch by another method.
