I have a 1996 Jaguar XJS convertible. The rocker handle does nothing but the lock works. Is there a way to open the trunk if the latch doesn't work? Thanks, Chuck

This one is gonna be tough -possibilities here could be a broken cable or linkage-check what you can do by going thru the back seat

Insert the key and move it to the 12:00 noon position then try to open it.
