there is a spring clip on the back of the lock. If you look up toward the back of the lock on the deck lid. There is a small screw. Take it out and pull the clip down and out. Hope this helps.

That tab pulls down were you took the screw out it could be rusty from sitting. It doesn't come all the way out just enought to release the lock.
hope this helps

You may have already done this, but there is a clip (held in by a phillips head screw) that has to be removed before the lock will come out. It's obvious just inside the lip of the trunk. Of course, it may be rusted in, too.:)
