I'm driving a 2001 525i, and I cannot get the trunk to open using any of the electrical means. Yes I could use the key manually, but it's getting on my nerves when I forget to unlock the car before using the key... causing the alarm to go off.

The trunk lock is in the vertical position, and my central locking system is working just fine. But the trunk does not respond to my remote entry, nor the button below the steering wheel. Any ideas?
Poss. just a small spring that has snapped. If you take the mechanism apart you'll see, or you could just do a search.
