Usually at the top corners of the back seat look for a strap

My trunk is stuck shut, how can I get it open? I can hear the lock mechanism unlatching using both the key fob and the latch by the drivers seat, but nothing is happening.


The seal around the Trunk is probably a bit sticky. It happens in winter. When you release the mechanism pull up on the trunk. To stop it happening spray the seal with a silicone spray like Jigaloo or dust it with talc.

I have a 2007 impala my trunk won't open and my seats Dnt fold how can I get to the trunk to change my tale light


On that model the only way to access the trunk when the latch has broken or has malfunctioned is by removing the entire rear seat assembly.
You need to pull the bottom section(the part you sit on) of the rear seat up and take it out of the car. Under the back section of the seat you will find a pair of bolts that hold the upright section of the seat to the car body. Remove the bolts and lift the seat back section up and remove it. Remove the protective layer and you can crawl into the trunk. You can then access the trunk latch from inside the trunk.

The vehicle should of course have been engineered with at least a narrow center fold down section of the seat from where you can access a manual trunk release . No doubt as a silly cost saving measure it was not designed this way.

Who do I remove rear seat for a BMW 760li?


Most rear seats need to be unlatched from the very bottom on each side. Try sliding the driver and passenger seats fully forward. With your back against the front seat press forward toward the trunk on the bottom of the rear seat on one corner at a time near the floor and lift up. This should release the latch. To replace the seat simply slide the seat back into place with the front slightly raised upward and push the seat in toward the trunk then push down til you hear the latch catch.

Trunk access from back seat


Some vehicles have drop down rear seat, should be a button or pull strap to release. Others do not have the option, and would require removal of the lower seat and seat back by removing bolts.

How do you get a 2000 dodge neon trunk open when the key won't work? No button in glove box.


The only other way I can think of is to remove the back seat to gain access to the trunk latch.
Otherwise, a locksmith would be my next solution.

My trunk is stuck shut, how can i get it open? they key will not turn and the latch thing by the front near the gas release will not work either...


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.

On the Jetta 2000 TDI, does the back seat flip down, enabling access from the trunk? Like a hatch back, I mean/.


Yup - each seat has a latch and you can gain access to the trunk... the seats can fold flat if you take off the headrests

This has been good for me since sometimes my trunk key or automatic opener doesn't work and I need to access the trunk from the car

Can't get trunk seat back down.


With the back hatch open look down and to the left side and you will see a latch pull up on the latch and pull the seat back down at the same time.
