If its just stuck closed (no broken cable), drive the car onto a driveway apron at an angle.  Often the body 'twist' will release the latches.


Good luck!

Thanks Carbuff. Unfortunately not an option at the moment. Sitting on a ramp doing a few winter jobs. Any other ideas. I’m sure I’ll find a way
