Dear costumer , i see that you are not in the vehicle, but if you get to be or have access to it ( any open door) you can access to trunk in many ways, generally you can remove the back seats, since many model have latches that when lowering the rear seats forward allow access to the trunk, in some others you need to remove the seats by removing the floor screws that hold the seat and allow it to be moved forward, this is not difficult and anyone can do it. This alternatives are if you have a way to access from inside, otherwise you could try using special pliers to open locks, they are usually sold in hardware stores, the thing about it is that you need technique and patience to do it,generally i don´t recommend this because you can damage your car lock and in the worst case the painting,just in a few cases as a technician we take this action, generally we use external companies specialized in locks
