Toyota avalon trunk release

My lock turned inside seal and I cannot use my key or interior release to open it. I have removed the rear seat and crawled in to physically release it. I had to remove the bracket to get inside as well. I would be happy to use the interior release only. What do I need to do to make this happen? Thank you!

SOURCE: I need to remove the

Pull up on the lower front edge to dislodge the seat from the clamps that holds the seat to the floor. Pull hard, if the seat has never been removed. the clamps will be tight. Once the seat bottom is out, you will be able to see the bolts that holds the rear seat backs onto the body.

SOURCE: how to remove rear struts from a avalon toyota

yes you will have to remove the rear seat. the bottom of the seat pulls straight up and out. the back of the seat has twelve mm bolts holding it at the bottom. once those are removed you lift straight up and out, its hooked at top.

How do I open the trunk of my 97 grand am when key wont turn it


someone moved the switch in the or should i say on the trunk lock itself to disable the trunk release from inside, SO...



Bottom of seat where your Butt goes, Has to be pushed hard to the rear bumber from the front on both side driver and passenger in the rear to disengage the rear catch then the rear seat comes up,





Next you should see 2 screws at the bottom of the back rest remove them and lift the back out, then your going to need a long screw driver or extensions for ratchet to unbolt the lock from the inside and that should be that,? Have fun.

Not able to open trunk


The release cable is probably slightly stretched and the latch a little dry of lubricant.Have someone **** on the release inside the car while you press the flat of your hand over the area of the latch and use a CPR approach on it, pressing down firmly and releasing again.Doing this a few times will often open trunks and gas fill covers.
Once open, use a lubricant on the latch mechanism, preferably not WD40 since this evaporates. Use another type of more durable oil on it.
Unfortunately, if the cable release needs replaced, this could be pretty involved (= costly).

Locked key in trunk with door open alarm sounding


I'm certain the Avalon has a trunk popper on the driver's side floor, next to the seat, inside the vehicle. Just pull the trunk lever, pop the trunk, get the key and shut it off.

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 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.

Trunk stuck on a 03 Corolla


I was able to unlock my trunk by using a wood pole to operate the interior safety unlock handle, which is located just above the trunk floor, against the rear of the trunk lid. You simply insert the wood pole between your rear seats, while attempting to locate the handle release. When you find the handle, use the wood pole to push down on it.

Then, I had to take the top of the truck mat loose by using a flat head screwdriver to pry the plastic plug holders loose from the trunk. I also had to use a 10mm socket to loosen the trunk locking mechanism. Once inside, I notice the remote release cable ball had dislodged from its slot. I simply placed the ball in its slot and reassembled the trunk.

Problem solve. :)

2004 TOYOTA COROLLA TRUNK


I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
