Emergency Trunk Access


04030300-nda-003I don’t believe this topic is covered in the Fiat Owner’s Manual, so being familiar with this excerpt from the MX-5 manual may come in handy some day if you are unable to access items in your trunk due to a dead battery or an inoperable electrical trunk release. Apparently the cap serves as a pull-handle attached to a cable that actuates the phosphorescent mechanical button located on the rear trunk panel (near the trunk latch – see diagram to the right) labelled OPEN which serves a  federally mandated manual release for those that might find themselves trapped in the trunk.
