I had my Nova painted and when I got it home the trunk lock would not work. I can't take it back to the shop, it is out of business. I do have the right keys and I have tried graphite to no avail. Any other tips to get it open from the outside? Or do I need to take the back seat out and crawl in the trunk? If so can I open it from the inside of the trunk?

Ive done that before not fun. If you remove the seats you might be able to reach the two bolts that hold it closed with a few socket extensions. I dont think I would fit again very tight and it scraped me up good.

Hahaha, have the solution!

I'll lend out a grandson. Last time this happened, the skinny little 10 year old did a number for me with a water-pump pliers.

this happened on my kids monte carlo so we make a new copy of the key just by chance and it worked. a dollar well spent.
