Putting the back seat down in a 97 Mazda Protege

I want to put my rear seat down in my car so that I can put things like skis in my trunk but I can't seem to find a leaver or button to do so. Can anyone describe to me how to do this?

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.

Open the trunk and look at the back of the seat for the latch, you should be able to see the mechanism from the trunk.

Does 2003 buick lasabre have access panel for skis in middle of rear seat


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.

How do you remove the back seat on a 1998 Mazda Protege with standard rear seats?


push HARD on the bottom of the bottom seat at the lower front point by the floor (one side at a time) and lift-once you release both sides, it just pulls out.

Fuel guage not reading fuel level


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.

Theresa,

Plug in your car and listen for a "sizzle" sound. If you hear this then your block heater works.... if not..... Call Canadian Tire!

Backseat repair


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.
