The seat has spring clips. You have to grasp the bottom front of the seat and pull up very hard to force it out of the clip. Then pull toward front seat.

You may need to use a flat head screwdriver or pry bar. It's a classic and could be tuff.

Hope this helps Mike

How do i get the back seats down to gain access to the trunk? It wont open


1. You either have a section of rear seat that folds down or you don't. Most cars do and those vehicles will have a manual tab just behind the seat that is connected to a cable that will release the trunk lock unless the lock is broken. So check the top of your rear seat sections for release buttons that enable a section of seat to be folded down. Then look just inside the opening for the manual cable release.

2. If you have a car with no section of rear seat that can be folded down, you will have to unbolt the rear seat to get access to the trunk. You need to remove the bottom section of the seat first. This will just pull up from the front and you can remove it from the car. Then you should be able to access the bolts that hold the upright section of seat in place.

Why my trunk want open


What is year--make--model? Does the trunk have a key lock? Will the key work?

If the trunk release is electric, need vehicle info to look up wiring. Some makes and models, the rear seat back will lower. Maybe you can access trunk, that way, or remove the rear seat-back then see if you can access the trunk?

How do you replace a sending unit on a 85 Delta 88???..asap!!


If you are reffering to the fuel tank sending unit, the fuel tank will have to be removed for access. Once removed, you can remove the sending unit by removing the lock ring securing it to the tank. Depending on rust/corrossion, the lock ring may require some patience to remove. Once the ring is removed the unit pull right out of the tank

Can I remove the rear seat from the trunk on a 93 mercury topaz


No, the seat can not be removed from trunk, use a wedge to pry top off the door open and use a coat hanger to hit door lock, or call your local police and they will come out and open the door with a lock out tool,

How do I get to the back up light on a 1988 Delta 88?


  1. Most rear lamps can be accessed from inside the trunk. Open trunk and look for access past the carpet.
  2. By pulling back the carpet or removing the large plastic carpet retaining nuts, you can see the back of the light assembly.
  3. If you can reach the bulb from inside the trunk, you don't need to remove the lens assembly to replace the bulbs. But, if you can't reach the bulb and connector assembly, you may need to remove the lens assembly.
  4. If necessary, remove the tail light panel screws and the lens assembly.
  5. You can now simply turn the bulb connector assembly counterclockwise and remove it from the lens housing.
Fig. 8: Once the carpet is pulled down, you can see the retaining wingnuts which must be removed to access the rear bulbs

I locked my keys in the trunk of my 2011 Kia optima. I am inside the passenger compartment how can I open the trunk to get my keys?


To avoid getting it towed to the dealer (where they'd remove the rear seat to access the trunk),
you can get out your socket set/tool kit and remove the rear seat yourself and reach into the
trunk. If this car has fold-down rear seat(s) or bolster(s), simply fold them down and reach in.
Haynes manual (or online manuals) for this car aren't yet accessible, but a call to your Kia
dealership's service dept. may get a mechanic on the line who can give you a few good tips, or
pay a handy neighbor to figure out how to remove (and re-install) the rear seat to get access to
the trunk...
