If you push on the front of the back seat and lift at the same time, it should release from the hooks that lock it in. You should be directly inline with the front seats when you're pushing on it and you may have to use quite a bit of force. 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 i open Mercedes-Benz 1998 E320 trunk from the fuse box under the hood


You may be able to unlock the trunk from the door lock pump under the back seat. Remove the rear seat bottom and the insulation from the right side. You'll see the battery and a foam box. The door lock pump (PSE) is in the foam box. You need to remove the vacuum line for the trunk latch (labeled RTR or RHR on the PSE pump) and apply some air pressure to it to unlock the trunk. You should then be able to open the trunk normally, unless the trunk lock key tumbler is in the lock position, then you need a key to get in.

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.

My friend locked my keys in my trunk and the button by the dash wont open it or the spare d-pad i had. it keeps clicking like its trying to open but it wont. i have my drivers test for my license tomorrow...


If you go to a Nissan dealer with your vehicles VIN number, they should be able to make another key for you to use to get into the trunk. Or you could call a locksmith to open the trunk for you.

Or, if the doors were not locked when you locked the keys in your trunk and you have access to the rear seat you can remove the seat and try to reach in from the seat side of the trunk to grab the keys.

I read about this in an online forum, heres the url:

http://forums.nicoclub.com/rear-seat-removal-in-2002-sentra-t408431.html

Read this and I think you will be able to get the trunk open.

There is a trunk release lever inside the trunk on the locking mechanism, if you can reach that
you will be able to open the trunk. But you will have to be able to get inside the car to be able to do this.

My son just received a 1995 Ford Taurus GL, the trunk release lever by driver side seat is locked, we do not have a key and now cannot open the trunk. Any suggestions?


I don't know about your 1995 Ford Taurus, BUT I found that when the rear driver side seat was loosened, there were several cables running alongside the driverside rear (underneath the seat and connecting bolt). Pull gently on the cables...you will find one of them is the trunk release cable(which pops oopen the trunk). And lo....there were my keys inside the trunk. Took 5 minutes to take apart and put together. Good Luck.

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...

Trunk wont open and the back seat wont fold down on our kia optim


By switching the lever you locked the inside trunk release, you will need to put lever back. as far as the trunk you may need to remove the rear seat, pop lower part out and then remove the bolts to the top half of the seat then try to reach the lever so it will open from the inside. i've found that many of these cars with the pop lever inside have sticking trunk locks from not being used, what you do first is spary lock good,with wd40 or pb blaster then slide key in and out and try to turn this may take a whhile but it works then tumbler will free up, you just have to keep spraying inside lock and working the key.

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.
