Question about 2008 Volvo S40

1 Answer

Hi, I bougth my new Volvo S40 in 2008 and never had any problem since then. Today, I found that I can not open the trunk, although the rest of the doors open fine. The central locking systems works fine for the rest of the door. Is there any way I can manually open the trunk?

If it is the same as the 2007 model.
The top of the key is a small slide switch.
You slide it and pull a vanity key out.If the glovebox has been locked it also possibly locks the boot with the same switch.
You will probably need to put key in glovebox lock and turn counter clockwise.
That key is to lock the seats to stop anyone getting into the boot via the fold down system as well.

Hope this helps.

How to get into Volvo s80 trunk


If you can get in the rear doors (?) the driver side comes down and you will have access albeit a small space to find keys, use a flashlight and if you have a 10 yr old around they can slip in and back out of the trunk although this is a last ditch effort. get a tool with magnet on the end and sweep the trunk until you locate the keys

your diamente, has split rear folding seats, however I can't remember how it operates, I believe the release is on the seat inside the car. you can gain access to the truck this way and there is an emergency trunk release (red handle) inside the trunk.. you can use this to open the trunk.. after you open it check all you mounting hardware for loose bolts or damaged hinges, it sounds as if it has shifted and the latch although is functioning it cannot release the trunk or the mechanism itself is not fully operating

Volvo uses electrical locking system. Sounds like some microswitch is about to fail. Another probable cause can be malfunctioning anti-theft device which bolts the doors so, that they cannot be opened from the inside. Get it checked.
