Small access hole under latch?
I have personally not verified this on my Series 3, and I cannot vouch if it is true for all years, but the post in the following link indicates that there is a 1/2" diameter access hole, directly under the trunk latch, that will allow you to thread a long screwdriver or hook up from below to release the latch mechanism:
I have also heard that some Spider owners remove the rear license plate and drill a small hole in the sheet metal behind it to gain access to the latch mechanism.
