From the inside, at the lock, tucked under the sunshade, is a manual cable release, . Kinda hard to find but when you find it, pull and it'll open.

I put my top from my 87 corvette in the car yesterday now i cant get the hatch back open to get it out it makes a clicking sound when i try but hatch doesnt open any ideas

theres a manual release to the left of the rear latch, might have to stick your hand in where your cover comes out. should be just a short cable you can grab onto and pull to open it. The clicking noise means it is working and just needs the cable adjusted.

1998 corvette, center console power outlet has come apart, how do you get to the underside of the console?

Open the hatch/door on the center console, pry up that plastic piece just forward of the door with a small screwdriver working from the rear, remove those 2 nuts in the recess, unscrew the door if you wish for easier handling, at the rear of the console opening there are 2 small plastic covers, pop those out and remove the 2 nuts under them, lift the rear of the console and slide it back just enough to unplug the fuel door opening button( there isn't much slack in the wiring for this button so don't pull the console back too far ). I suspect you only needed step one, but this will get the console out for easier access to the power outlet.

Locked out of Corvette

Hello If your vehicle has lost battery power, open the
hatch/trunk using the vehicle key. The key lock cylinder
is located on the rear of the hatch/trunk lid above the
license plate. Turn the vehicle key clockwise in the lock
That should get you in My dream Car LOL and Thank you for using Fix Ya Bear001
