The lock on my '86 325es stopped working. The lock turns and the button goes in but the trunk does not open. Any ideas? I've tried to locate a new lock to no avail.

check the back mechanisms. it doesnt lock at all or it just doesnt lock with the power locks ? you dont need to have the power locks connected or on the car to have your trunk key lock and/or open up. i removed the entire power doors, windows and all the mechanisms to go along with them and my trunk opens, closes and locks perfectly.

Be sure to find a new lock first. When the trunk lock on my '91 318is broke I ended up having to drill it out to get the trunk open.
