As long as you have a tool set handy you should be able to. There should be about 6 to 8 bolts securing the seat to the frame. if this doesnt work or you seats fold down then try removing the rear speakers and reaching your hand through the hole. (you may have to damage your speaker headliner for this to work.) Or just do it the easy way and go to orileys and buy a "slim jim" they will know what your talking about. To use this stick it down your window next to the lock with the hook facing the rear of the car and then angle it. If you did it right you should be able to pull up and it should unlock your door. hope this helps

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 manually pop a trunk on a 94 Camry


Use the key. If the key doesn't work, lower the rear seat to gain access to the trunk, there you can activate the lock mechanism with a screwdriver or trunk release if it has one.

1993 Toyota Celica trunk will not open. The lock is stuck in a middle position. Can I go through the back seats to fix the problem?


YES.
Crawl into the back and remove all of the screws that hold the back plastic panel on.

the back seat is removed by pulling up the rear seat front cushion.
Then you get access to the seat back.
There are 2 12 mm bolts that hold the seat back AND the side arm rest.Lower arm rest bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.
Tie the seat belts back.
The seat back bolts are at the bottom. 12 mm.

B-4 you try that ordeal......
Use lock eaze on the lock cylinder.
Graphite spray can.

Try pulling the trunk key back out.
maybe a slide hammer..
Put down pressure on the trunk lid,first.
Have a friend sit on it...

WD-40: last resort.

Work the key in the cylinder after you dowse the key hole with that crap/chemical.
If the key brakes off,into the trunk you go.

Keys lock in trunk alarm will not allow trunk switch to lock


The solution is to pull out the back seat to get into the trunk. There are two bolts holding the bottom part of back seat (bolts located between bottom and top sections). Then pull out bottom section of back seat and you see the hinge for the top section, remove the bolts and then you can lift up and access the trunk. It's not that hard.

Can not figure out how to open my daughters 2006 vw beetle trunk with key. We tryed swiveling the vw badge did not work. Maybe you have to just pop it inside or with key button. Does any one know?


the trunk has no key lock. it can only be opened remote or on the door. in an emergency you can access a manual lock by lowering the center of the back seat and reaching in finding the latch on the underside of the lid

Trunk will not open with or without key


hello theres really not many choices if you have a trunk key it should work if not and the inside trunk release isnt working either you could try to get at the lock setup from the back seat take your lower seat out remove the lower holding bolts slide up off the top lock setup see if theres enough room to work from there to pop the trunk open with a flash light and a screwdriver if not your going to have to pop the lock cylinder at your trunk once its out you can get a aftermarket replacement under $ 20 goodluck please rate
