To open the trunk of a Ford Mustang, you can follow these steps:

Materials You’ll Need:

  • Your Ford Mustang vehicle


  1. Park the Vehicle:
    • Find a safe and well-lit location to park your Ford Mustang. Ensure that the engine is turned off and the vehicle is in “Park.”
  2. Locate the Trunk Release Button:
    • Inside your Mustang’s interior, typically on the driver’s side, look for the trunk release button. It’s often located on the driver’s door panel, near the window controls or on the dashboard.
  3. Activate the Trunk Release Button:
    • Press the trunk release button. When you do this, you should hear a clicking sound, indicating that the trunk has been unlocked.
  4. Exit the Vehicle:
    • Exit the driver’s seat and walk to the rear of the vehicle.
  5. Locate the Trunk Latch:
    • On the rear of your Mustang, find the trunk latch. It’s usually in the center or slightly off-center.
  6. Press or Lift the Trunk Latch:
    • Depending on your Mustang model, you may need to press the latch or lift it to release the trunk. This action should open the trunk lid.
  7. Lift the Trunk Lid:
    • After releasing the trunk latch, lift the trunk lid to fully open it. Some Mustang models have trunk struts that will hold the trunk lid open, while others may require you to hold it up manually.
  8. Perform Necessary Tasks:
    • With the trunk open, you can access the storage space to load or unload items, retrieve belongings, or perform any necessary tasks.
  9. Close the Trunk:
    • After you’ve finished using the trunk, gently lower the trunk lid until it’s securely closed.
  10. Ensure Proper Latching:
    • Push down gently on the trunk lid to ensure it’s securely latched in place. It should not bounce back up, indicating that it’s locked.

That’s it! You’ve successfully opened and closed the trunk of your Ford Mustang. Always make sure to secure the trunk properly to prevent it from accidentally opening while driving or to prevent theft of your belongings from the trunk.
