I have an 05 Beetle. The trunk release has stopped working on the drive side door and both key fobs. The button for gas door still works fine and key fobs still work on the door locks :( car doesn't even appear to have a way to open trunk manually with key.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

You might have a faulty trunk lock release motor.

You'll need to crawl over the back seats and remove the trunk lid
plastic trim to gain access to the release motor & lock assembly.

Once the plastic trim is off, you can open the trunk by pulling on
the release rod that is attached to the lock.

With the trunk lid open, you can more easily work on testing & removing
the release motor.
