Ford Taurus Lockout

Recently, I got a job from a locksmith company I am working with at the moment to unlock a trunk of a 96 Ford Taurus. When I called the customer to verify his location, he mentioned that he accidentally left the keys inside the trunk and closed it. In my experience, I knew this type of vehicle had a wider key-way than the older models made by Ford, so I knew picking it would not be easy with the picking tools I had. Once I got to the job site, I reached for my picking tools to try and manipulate the lock anyways. However, when I tried picking it, I noticed I did not had the tension wrench wide enough in order to apply the tension needed on the key-way.

While brainstorming other ideas to open the trunk, I unlocked the vehicle's driver side door in hopes there would be some sort of a trunk release lever hiding under the dash, on the side of the driver seat, or inside the glove compartment. Needless to say, I was not lucky to find any of those. However, just as I thought this won't be my lucky day, I noticed there was a release lever on the back seat of the vehicle. At that point all I had to do was lower the back seat using the release lever and retrieve the customer's keys from the trunk.
