I doubt drilling the lock would do anything, as its attached from behind and the link rod down to the latch. If you are small, or have a skinny friend, you could remove the rear seats and cut the bulkhead (where the armrest is/ski hole would be) as its already marked out. or possibly remove the rear bumper and access the pump through the vent in the rear o/s wing, find a pinout and supply 12v to the boot lock and pop it that way.
