Trunk lid not opening w108

I hardly ever lock the trunk lid on my 4.5 but happened to do it over the weekend. When I attempted to unlock it this morning it would not open. The key turns the lock just fine but the lid just appears to be still locked. The trunk itself was working perfectly prior to this.

Any suggestions?

You probably already tried turning the key to the left, and pushing the button in while turned to that position. Correct? (That's been my method on multiple chassis for years now.)

Well! that was embarrassing. Hm, maybe a good idea for me to read the manual next time before consulting the board...
