Re: Putting the back seat down in a 97 Mazda Protege
The release on an LX or ES model is at the top of the seat backs, near the door opening, for the rear seats. The rear bench is a 60/40 split on these models. The rear seat does not lay down on the DX models.

if the battery is completely dead... there is a way to open the trunk from the inside. it involves putting the rear seat down. in the middle under the back window theres an emergency rear seat release. lower the seat, and then pull emergency trunk release on the top of the trunk door. hope this helped.
In the trunk of the car there is a black panel behind the rear seat remove screws that hold this panel on. There are three magnets at the top of the panel. Remove panel and put screws in safe place. Go back to the inside of the vehicle there are three brackets that hold in top cover of back seat remove that lay it down in the back seat. You now have complete access from the rear seat to the trunk. To reassemble reattach rear seat top. Reassemble black panel in trunk just attach to metal with magnets and then put screws back in. Hope this is helpful and informative.
Fuel sending unit in the gas tank is defective. Might have to drop the tank to replace it. Sometimes you can get to it by removing the back seat or through the trunk at the back seats. Not all cars have this feature.
they're underneath the plastic deck cover in the back, where the speakers are. -just a few plastic fasteners and the wire connector for the rear light, and it'll pop right off. -just did it myself this weekend
This sounds like a visit to the local auto salvage yard to find some
used seats. new ones would be absurdly expensive. They are not too hard
to get out as my brother removes his back seat every time he locks his
keys in trunk of his Protege. The seats usually "hook" in.
