trunk latch removal help

hi all! I'm yet another in the long thread of trunk latch problems. I think mine is the latch itself. Does anyone have instructions or photos to show me the procedure for removing the latch...I'm having trouble with the arm that goes to the lock/trunk release button. The car is a 2001 z3.

thanks so much!

I'm having the same problem with my 2001 Z3. I was adjusting the latch when the (I believe) arm going from the latch to the key cylinder to the right of the latch fell off the key cylinder. Now I have a trunk I can not open. Is there a remote that will get me back into my trunk? If not any suggestions?

Guess what? Found this discussion and I ordered hood latch cable. Trying to figure out what I need to remove on front end to detach and replace cable.
