I have also heard that some Spider owners remove the rear license mounting plate and drill a small hole in the sheet metal behind it to gain access to the latch mechanism.
My '74 S2 has that 1/2" access hole.

If your '89 has that access hole, let us know whether you can release the latch with a screwdriver or other tool.

Good luck!
