Trunk wont open.

Hey guys, i cant seem to get the trunk open my 92 500e. The battery is dead, i dont think that would matter but maybe im wrong.
I have 2 keys for the car and have tried both of them. Turning counter clockwise, i can turn the trunk lock to the right and it clicks but to the left just doesnt seem to turn all the way. Any sugestions?

Battery won't matter; you should be able to unlock it with the key. Should unlock going counter-clockwise.

Well i guess it was jammed somehow.. i used a small block of wood and a mallet and hammered twice on the lock button and the trunk poped open. Ill investigate further to find out why that happend.
