I was fixing a speaker in my door panel, when I decided to open the hatch to get some electrical tape. I used the key because I already removed my hatch-unlock button from my door [don't ask why I didn't press the button on the key]. I turned the lock clockwise and the entire locking mechanism turned with it. Obviously, I should've turned the key counter-clockwise to unlock it. Obviously, my lock is now broken.

Can somebody tell me if they've ever encountered/heard of this problem? I can't get my hatch open at all now, and I would love to be able to fix this myself, although something tells me that German engineering is against me on this one:mad:

I'm so frustrated with everything in my car breaking. You know you're having a bad day when you look UP to Hondas [suicide]
