MazdaSpeed6 (2006) Can't get into trunk


2019 Mazda CX-5 Sig
OK here is a catch-22 issue. My truck will not open. Its not the request switch or the valet lockout. Its seems like the latch is notw longer connected. I (and the dealer) have tried everything we can think of, Since this is Speed6, there is no way to fold down the rear seats (without being in the trunk) or use an emergency release (without being in the trunk). The dealer says two choices, crowbar the trunk open (causing unknown damage) or break open the rear seats ((causing unknown damage).

Looking for better options / suggestions.

If you remove the rear seats, you can see into the trunk. Maybe enough to fish something back to the trunk release.
