Trunk Removal w/o Key

I can't find my keys to my 02 600. Yes it is mine. Not stolen. I need to take off the trunk because my registration and insurance info are in there. The dealer needs my registration to make me a new key. Is there a way to take off the trunk without cutting it off. I tried to search this topic but was not able to find anything.

I doubt it. That would be a security problem if you could get in there witout a key. In fact, I'm pretty sure thats one of the statndards when making them so people CAN'T get into it without a key.

Go to the DMV and they'll give you another copy of your registration. That would be your best bet.

Didn't think of that. Just thought there was a way to get the trunk off. I guess I will have to wait in the long ass line tomorrow.

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

there are ways to do it, but you run the risk of cracking the plastic. i would wait and go to the dmv.

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

I was an idiot once and locked my keys under the seat and I tried for about 10 minutes to get my hand under there before I thought wait wtf am I doing I can just take the rider seat off and reach my hand up there. If I could get my keys out from under there you should be able to reach your hand up and pull the registration through.

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

same thing with joe, once i took my seat i was able to do quite a bit, and also, if u take off the rear hugger/undertail u might be able to gain some access..

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

take the undertail off, partially remove the side panels, and the seat. Then fiddle with it till you can reach in there, or stick in a pair of needle nose pliars and get the paper work out

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

I accidentally locked my key in there going to class over a year ago. You could pull it off and end up bending the plastic latch on the back end. It might do damage to other parts though. I had a girl in my class that was really skinny and she'd walk with me to my bike. She managed to fit her hand in there as I pried it up and she grabbed my key.

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

Use a flash light to see....you should be able to use a hanger or somethin to move the hinge over.

Re: Trunk Removal w/o Key

Just while we are on the topic of using hangers. If you ever lock your keys in your cage and you have power door locks, you can use a hanger to slide through the window and hit the unlock button. Luckily I thought of that because I had to do it one time and I dont have a spare key for my cage. I dont understand all this talk about taking off the tail plastic or ripping it off or using a hanger to snake under it, the easiest this is to just take the front seat off.
