Question about 2000 Ford Focus
When i try to turn the key it doesnt really turn but the runk just wont open up. so i opened the back doors to try and get into the trunk that way but i cant even get the back seats down cause the levers are in the trunk. Please in full details as to get the seats down and help me open up my trunk
You might have a power trunk button try to look for it also you should download your owners manual at ford owners.Com it should give you the location and your fuse box diagrams and other information now the seat you will have to unbolt it the side panels pop out and are held in with clips the bottom of the seat may pop out by pushing inwards but this also could be bolted in look around the bottom also when you pop out the side panels you might gain accessories to the rear deck bolts that the third brake light is attached to and radio speakers if applicable anyway you should be able to axcess the trunk by this path it's going to be a pain in the gozompus but you can get in I don't own a focus but from memory of getting stuff in junk yards I'm trying to help you so excuse me if I'm wrong here or there so pull out the door seals that go around the door opening there might be panel bolts in the frame and seat bolts behind once you get to them you should be able to get to the levers also I know that the lock was possibly frozen when you put in the key knocking in the weather shield and jamming the lock cylinder you can try putting the key in and keep trying to turn it while banging the trunk where the cylinder is and you might jar it loose that metal flap has a spring on it and those 2 things are stopping the key from turning the other alternative is to try using a very small screwdriver to try to move it out of the way so the key will turn you have to be gentle here digging in like crazy will not help and last of all if you can't get in then use a drill and destroy the cylinder completely and a long screwdriver and a hammer will get you in you'll have to change the cylinder anyway so whack away at it if all else fails good luck stephen

SOURCE: my trunk wont open!!
Someone else posted the same problem, so I went out to my Focus and found a way to release the back seats. It is diffecult, but possible, to push the release lever in the trunk with a thin board (like a 4 foot piece of baseboard) through the space between the seats. The release lever is in the upper corner (passenger side) of the trunk. Get something to wedge between the seats and a flashlight. Post the result if this works.

It sounds like your latch has double locked. Here is the fun part, can you drop your rear seat and get into the trunk? If you can look for a tag that is possabily glowing pull it to release the emergency latch on the trunk. then with your finger lock the latch and check to see if it is leaving a large enough gap fot your pinky finger to fit in. if it is then you have reset it. if not then pull the emergency release a few more times

Remove back seat ,bottom first push seat in the middle with both hands ,lift after you have pushed on seat this releases the catch.remove the top part of the seat you will need to remove 2 screws lift srtaight up the seat will come out ,now you will see sound deadning material ,remove ,carefull not to tear,with flash lite look at inside of trunk lock area ,you will see a slot on the latch ,use regular flat screw driver to insert into slot just turn right ,left the trunk will open .you can take out trunk lock cylender out and any lock repair shop can re key the lock by looking at the tumblers inside the cylender.Good luck I know this will work ,sounds like a lot of work but not realy.

On the top of the backrest of the seats next to the trim should be two push buttons. Push the button down and pull the seat forward
