I searched the owner's manual and there was no mention of folding the rear seats down. If you don't have a manual, you can get one here: http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/buick/1999-Buick-Century.pdf

You can remove the seats following the instructions below from autozone.com.
Rear Seats
SEAT CUSHION

  1. Locate and remove the small bolts at the front lower edge of the seat cushion.
  2. Pull the tabs on the rear cushion retainers.
  3. Remove the seat cushion by lifting up and pulling out of the retainer.
  4. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Make sure the retainer tabs are snapped into place. Tighten the bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).

Where exactly are the levers in the trunk of a


Open the trunk (UK: Boot). While looking at your rear speakers you will see there magnets sticking out of your rear deck lid (UK:Parcel shelf). In the middle of them will be 2 straps. These straps are what you pull to get the seats to fold down. give them a tug and the seats will go down, might be worth giving them a slight push if they havent' been folded down for a while.

Can't open trunk using the inside lever, key or button. Any suggerstions as got perishable food stuck in there. Thanks


If your Grand Am has the split rear folding seat, you can try folding the seat down but using a wire coat hanger. Try to snake the coat hanger through the split in the seat and hook the strap to pull it to be able to fold the seat down to gain access to the trunk. http://www.gaownersclub.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=17492&d=1121049659

As for the trunk being locked. Is it possible the remote lockout was activated? Try a yard stick to slide the red switch or just crawl in after you folded the seat down and removed all the food. If it's engaged, the remote solenoid will still activate (you can hear it), but the trunk won't open remotely.

Good luck and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya

Does the back seat fold down to access the trunk


Not likely, If it does, there should be a pull strap located in the top, center of the backrest, They were pretty obviuos,although most of them were not equipped with this option. However the seat can removed if there is a broken or malfunctioning lock in the trunk! Hope this helps

How does the back seats fold down in a 2004 Chevy Cavalier?


In the trunk on the top there are two straps that look like they go on a back pack, just behind the split in the seat. You need to pull those down and it undoes a latch on the back of the seats, which then you can fold them down. Good luck and enjoy your Cavalier.

Does the back seat open to the trunk?


Go into the trunk. On each side, below the package shelf are two pull straps. Pull the strap for the side of the seat that you want to fold down. The one on the left is a 3/4 width seat folded down. The one on the right is a 1/4 wide seat folded down.

Open the back trunk, look near the top of the trunk, and pull the two black levers. They have a seat folding down symbol. That will release the locks to fold the back seat down.

I cannot fold down seat


Try looking for a strap in your trunk it should be located at the upper inside of your trunk, there could be one or two straps, when you pull on these straps they act as a release lever for your rear seats, pull the straps toward you and push the seats forward from the trunk side.

There shouls be 2 straps inside the trunk at the top. Both on the driver side but one is for the left side and one for the right side seats. Pulling on the straps releases the 'lock' that should then allow you to pull down the seats from the back seat area.
