any one have any other ideas? when you push in the lock to open trunk. it doesnt release. just sticks. i unlock and lock and it doesnt pop out. i have a stereo system in my trunk so its next to impossible to go in from the back seat.

Have you tried holding down the button longer? You can hear the locks working. When the trunk unlocks it make a long whine.

Locksmith to see if they can do anything other then that you may need to go in thru the back seat.

there's a button on the driver's side door by the tray near your foot. Avant ftw in this case! haha Good luck :]

Mine did that before and I just punched the top of the trunk above the lock real hard a few times. Works fine now.

what are you talking about? doesnt have that. maybe if you have an a4 with an electric trunk popper, but does anyone have that?

IIRC, only newer models (99.5+?) and/or avants have the button on the inside.

My trunk button on the deck lid sticks too.
What works for me: If it gets stuck, I lock it, hit it pretty hard a few times with the side of my hand untill it pops out, then press the key fob to unlock it then push and hold to open it. If that doesn't work, I stick the key in and slighty turn it enough to hold the key in and pull the button out. Just play with it (the trunk, not your junk) and you'll figure it out.

Did you every figure this out? I push my lock in and it doesn't unlock the trunk either. My backseat has been my trunk for a while now. PITA.

I like how this thread jumped from February to June and just kept going like it never ended.

I haven't had this problem by the way... yet.

I found it..... well I removed the black insert where the red reflecter sits in and found that the bolts that hold the lock in place was very loose so I tightened it up and all was good
