Under the panel between the back window and the trunk lid opening, on the outer edges of the trunk opening.
2 small knobs that look like little cigarette lighters.

My trunk lock and release is no longer working in my 2005 Toyota Corolla. Although I can turn the key left and right as per owner's manual, trunk will not "pop open". Back seat release is in trunk; removed...


In my '04 corolla I can unlatch the left passenger seat back by reaching behind the left seat back and sticking my finger up into the second of 3 quarter sized holes. my arm is about 15" stuck in and reaching up into the trunk about 6" back. Feel around for the holes. You can pull the latch at that point, but...you have to be flexible.

I went to open my 2005 Toyota Corolla trunk using my car key. When I rotated the key, the mechanism went 90 degrees CCW but the trunk remained locked. I tried the trunk release in the car but it wouldn't...


If you have rear seats that fold down you can access the latch mechanism from the left side rear seat....if you are flexible. pull the corner of the seat forward to allow your arm to slide in behind. about 14-16" in, feeling up inside the trunk you can feel 3 quarter size holes in the sheet metal. The second hole has the cable release arm. stick your finger up there are pull towards you. this will release the seat allowing it to fold down. Crawl into the trunk. there is a glow in the dark release handle on the inside of the trunk lid to open the trunk. Note, these are instructions for an '04 corolla but I think it should work

I have a 2002 toyota corolla and the trunk is jammed shut so i need to get in thrugh the back of the seat. how do you take the seat off?


inside the trunk if you do get inside there is a switch and 2 knobs to let down the rear seats. Im sure you already knew that. The only other way to get in the trunk is not to tak eout the seats because its too dangerous to the integrit yof the srs system. You want to take off the plastic surround that is next to the seats and above the seats where the speakers are. Hope this helps. If you have anymore questions please please please comment back

2003 Toyota Corolla LE back seat fold down? how?!


My 05 Corolla trunk would not open. I used a broom handle shoved between the rear seats to activate the emergency release handle on the back of the trunk lid. It took about 2 minutes. When I tapped it just right the lid popped open. This was better the damaging the rear seat by bending it to reach the seat releass mechanism. It turned out that the cable came off in the asembly probably from slamming the lid shut. Once the cable was returned to its location I used needle nose pliers to sqeeze the metal tighter around the cable.

Trunk wont open with the key or the interior lever. Need to acces


the release cords are located inside the trunk, try popping out the back seat, you will see the gold, 14mm(?) bolts holding the seats in, maybe you can get in by taking the back of the seat out, good luck

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2000 toyota corolla ce,


Yes, or you may have to remove the rear seats to gain access to the trunk area.Roll your windows down or leave the doors open to ensure there is sufficient air flow inside of the car. You do not want to run out of oxygen.

2003 Toyota Corolla LE back seat fold down? how?!


Open the back trunk, look near the top of the trunk, and pull the two black levers. They have a seat folding down symbol. That will release the locks to fold the back seat down.

1997 Toyota Corolla Trunk Release not working...


The trunk release cable runs along the inside edge of the car, under the carpet, on the driver side. It then snakes up over the metal under the rear seat, and then into the trunk, running along the trunk hinge/arm, driver's side. You will need to remove the rear seat bottonm and the seat back, and pull the carpet back on the driver's side to see the cable... More below:
-------> Before you do all of that, unbolt the latch handle and see if the plastic tab on the latch that holds the cable is broken; the cable release wires rarely fail, I replace handle assemblies regularly, never a cable. Maybe you just need a handle assby. Feel free to comment back if you need more assistance; Thanks for choosing FixYa.
