    The hatch latch assembly bolts to a bracket on the rear filler panel with three bolts. There is a motor release mechanism attached in front of the latch assembly. If your car has been gutted, and the carpet in the hatch well removed, the assembly should be fully visible. If they gutted it, maybe they even removed the release motor mechanism to save weight

    I'll take a look at the setup in my car later today. I removed the hatch well carpet, so the mechanism is visible. I'll take a picture and see if I can upload it.

    The site seems to be having a problem posting anything that has a link embedded in it. @meissen is trying to fix it. So I"m not sure if my picture will post, but I'll try.

    The latch on my 94 (totally stock hatch, purchased new in 1994) is not the same. The circled lever does not exist. That may be just a spring to pop the lid up a fraction of an inch when the latch releases.

    You can open the hatch by twisting the end of the long, flat shaft that comes from the key cylinder, and passes through the larch mechanism, and sticks out about 1" past the mechanism. If you want to remove the latch assembly, the three bolts are 10mm. If you want to try using the battery, apply 12 volts to the black/white attached to pin A of the release motor connector (connector with orange safety tie), and make sure there is a ground at pin B (black wire). The power runs through a relay, so the current draw might by high on the release motor.

    It just spins. It might be the rod is missing. My old 67 Caprice trunk lock spun around as well I had to get a small friend to crawl in there with a screwdriver to open it to fix the lock with a new one. They come with that rod or bar.

    Unfortunately I would need a very small friend to crawl back there....... something to think about for the future, if I decide to keep the car.

    Oh crap yeah. That is a bit of a reach too. Drill out the lock then stick a skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole in to the latch.

    Or ask Jose to get his slide hammer yank out the lock then use the skinny flat blade driver.

    You guys rock!! thank you so much for all taking time to reply.

    I for sure do not have the button. My latch also does not have the plastic piece on the latch shown on yours.

    I can get back there pretty easy. Twisting the rod did not pop it, but I was afraid to twist too hard. I did snap a pic so you can all see what I have. Could I just unbolt the latch from the hatch itself? Not sure why I didn't think of that before. Then I think the hatch would open just without the part that hooks into the latch. Then just replace the whole latch and lock cylinder with a new one?
