The trunk of my Plymouth Breeze won't open

I have a 1997 Plymouth Breeze. There's a latch on the drivers side on the floor that you pull that opens the trunk of the car. I tried pulling that latch to open the trunk and its loose and the trunk won't open, and I really need to get it open. What can I do?

How do I convert my car seat to a boster seat --I have an Eddie Bauer Deluxe 3-in-1 Car Seat

Remove the large bar holding the bottom plate. One side will have a plastic retainer which you just move to the side and pull the barr all the way out from that side. There is a rear leg that you can pull down and back which will make the seat sit more upright. Remove the strap (it is one solid strap) and be sure to save all the parts if you plan on giving it to a needy family when your child outgrows it. The center clip is easy to remove, turn the seat upside down and find the metal retainer and pull it up, turn 90 degrees and feed it through the hole and pull on the other side. Now you should have a strap/clip free seat that will be a "seatbelt positioning booster seat".

Bought used Britax Marathon and Roundabout carseats, without the manaul. Need directions on how to install- rear facing for now, but will need directions on forward facing as well.

Go to the Britax website they have a pretty detailed explaination. Basically use the latch clips put your knee in it and pull tight. where you get the real security is though the tether that comes of the back of the headrest, you attach that to the floor clip in your car or under the front seat if you dont have one.

How to remove seat cushion for repair

Since you mention two front seats, I assume you have bucket seats. These are pretty easy to remove, just look under the seats for the 4 bolts that go into the floor. You may have to feel under the floor for the bottom end of each bolt to get a wrench on it.

The rear seat is a bit more tricky. Remove the bottom cushion first, by pushing down HARD on the front edge of the seat (SIT on it!), and then, while pushing the front edge down, also push back on the front edge of the cushion - it will move back about an inch, and that will release the hold down hook that holds it in place. Then you can just lift out the seat cushion.

The rear seat backrest has two bolts that you can get at after you remove the seat cushion - they go into the floor under the bottom edge of the rear seat backrest. Take those two bolts all the way out, and then grab the rear seat backrest, push it back toward the trunk while you lift up on the bottom edge. Don't pull it away from the metal backing, just slide it up toward the rear window - that will release it from the holding hooks at the top of the rear seat cushion and the whole cushion can be lifted out of the car.

If your car has a center console in front, or a speaker grille in the middle of the rear seat, you will probably have to look around for the mounting hardware - the console is bolted to the floor, and you will probably have to take it apart or remove the shift knob to get it out. The rear seat speaker grille, if it is between the two sides of the rear seat backrest will be bolted to the metal braces behind the rear seat. You may have to climb in through the trunk to get at those.

Just a word of caution regarding Mustangs: The floors are an important structural part of the car, since it has no frame - if the floors are rusted, the car may very well be unsafe to drive - I advise you to have it inspected at a frame shop to see if it is able to be made safe to drive before you spend a bunch of money on a losing project.

How to install infant car seat

The two clips are both for the LATCH system - they're not top tethers (which go to the back of the seat for forward facing seats only).

You need to choose EITHER the LATCH installation OR the seatbelt installation - doing both together can put too much stress on the belt path of the seat, causing the plastic to weaken.

If your car has the LATCH system, there will be two metal U-shaped anchors in the seat, where the seat back and the bottom of the seat meet. Some cars only have them for the side seats, not the middle, so check your car's owner's manual - if you don't have them specifically for the center seat, you'll have to either install with the seatbelt or put it in a side seat to use the LATCH - don't try using one anchor from each side, as they won't be the proper distance apart.

If you'd prefer to use the seatbelt to install, kneel with all of your weight in the seat to tighten the seatbelt. It's tight enough when it can't move more than 1 inch from side to side if you grab it at the belt path and pull it back and forth. You probably will still be able to pull the TOP of the infant seat back towards the back of the seat of the car - that's not a problem - it helps the seat to cradle the baby through an accident.

You need to have an owner's manual, though - to request a copy, contact their customer service at or call them at 1-800-544-1108.

I haven't seen a video for it, but I'll try to explain it clearly. To install it with the LATCH system, locate the anchors in your car - U shaped metal anchors in the seat, where the back meets the bench part. See your car's owner's manual - many cars don't have LATCH in the middle of the back seat, so you'll have to install it in a side seat or use the seatbelt to install, instead. Recline the carseat all the way - there is a handle under the harness adjuster on the front of the seat. Pull the handle while pushing back on the top of the seat. Tuck the top tether strap under and hook it under the base or the seat - it's only used when forward facing and is dangerous if left flapping. Pull the seat cover off of the front corners of the seat. Thread the black latch belt through the rear facing belt path (the holes on the bottom front of the seat - there should be a sticker identifying the path), making sure that it does not twist and is behind, not over or in front of, the **** strap, but in front of the the slots that the bottom of the harness straps go through. Replace the seat cover. Put the carseat where you want it in the car. Look to see that the level lines on the shoulder belt positioning guide are level with the ground. Double check that the top tether is secured underneath the seat. Fasten one latch hook to the anchor in your seat, going from above the anchor, so that the clip part of the hook is on the bottom and the solid side is on top. Repeat on the other side. Kneel in the car seat to push it firmly into the seat while pulling the strap tight through the adjuster. The seat is installed tight enough when you can grab it at the belt path and can not move it more than 1 inch side to side. It is normal to be able to pull the top of the seat towards your car's seat back some. To install it with a seatbelt - (Please note - you can only install with the LATCH system OR the seatbelt - doing both together increases the stress and force on the seat and can damage it!) Recline the seat and secure the top tether as above. Place the seat in the car and make sure that the level lines are level with the ground, as above. Thread the seat belt through the rear facing belt path (again, the holes on the bottom front of the seat...look for the sticker). Thread it under the seat pad. Like above, it should go between the bottom slots for the harness and the **** strap. Buckle the seat belt. Kneel in the seat, pull the seat belt all the way out from it's feeder, and feed it back in, pulling it as tight as you can. Check for tightness as above. While your child is rear-facing, the harness should be in a slot that is even with or below his shoulders. Pull it snug - when it's tight enough, you shouldn't be able to pinch up any slack lengthwise at the shoulders or hips and it should lay in a straight line without any sagging. Make sure the chest clip is even with the baby's armpits, not over the neck or the belly. Good luck!

Rear facing latch problem

I had trouble getting mine tight too and my sister said what she did was kneel in the seat and then pull up on the strap. I tried that and it worked! I think it pushes the seat down more so that you have more strap to pull.
