    Yes you can. You have to remove the pannel on the boot lid from inside the car, then just pull the rod from on the boot lock inside. It's easy enough. (The rod is straight from inside the boot) .Pull it up or push it down, it's one of those moves to pop it open.

    you can push the lock open from inside just use a small screw driver thats all no need to take any trim off then oil up the lock and rods when the boot is open
