I have a similar problem, with my '89 325is.
Some thief/vandal tried to pry open my trunk lock, and ruined the lock in the process. It cannot be opened with the key.
My boyfriend and I (with our chilton's guide) took a look at the wiring diagram, and found the leads coming from the central locking control unit, into the trunk lock actuator.
We stuck a switch between ground/unlock request...crossed our fingers...flipped the switch...and every lock in the car unlocked, _except_ for the trunk lock.
Seems that the electrical components of the trunk lock are shot. Thanks to that thief for bringing this to my attention!
Anyway, my question is this: Is there any MANUAL way to get the lock open? Mind you, the lock is so damaged, that the key cannot be inserted. Can I jimmy it with a coathanger? Hairpin?
If anyone can help, lemme know...
