Are you sure that you don´t have one and it is just not functioning. The lock itself should be easy to change (to one that has the trunk central lock), though to change the lock to operate with your keys you might need some help from the lock specialist. They might be prizy at the dealer but try to find some newer models that has been crashed. I wouldn´t try to "fix it myself with a solenoid", original lock are more reliable, easier to install (just plug it in - no drilling etc.), and works both ways. Roy
