The latch on my trunk is not functioning. I thought it would be a simple matter to remove the back seat to get into it. Obviously, the IMA battery I discovered behind it sort of gets in the way.

Is is possible to remove the battery housing to get into the trunk?

The only alternative to going at it from the seat is to somehow use a sawzall to cut the latch itself off and then replace it.

I'm at a real loss here, and any advice would be appreciated!
