The back seat of the Impala can only be folded down if your vehicle is the particular fold-down version, otherwise, it'll have to be removed entirely to gain access to the massive available space.
To remove the seat, follow these steps:
• Push down on the bottom cushion of the back seat.
• Pull-on the T handles which are under the front edge of the seat, to release the bottom cushion
• Remove the cushion
• Unwind the nuts and bolts on the bottom part of the back seat. Then lift it, and it would be released from its position.
• Now, remove the seat from the back and you can access the trunk.

SOURCE: '07 Chevy Tahoe 3rd Row seat will not fold down

I have had this problem, and I am having it again. The problem is if a little trash gets under the bar in the floor, it will keep the mechanism from locking completely. I had tried everything. The only solution so far is the rock back and forth. Real pain. I am trying to find a secret release.

SOURCE: How does the back seats fold down in a 2004 Chevy

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.

My trunk is stuck on my 2000 Toyota Corolla CE. How can I get the back seats to fold down so I can access the trunk from the back seat?

I'm not sure which version of the rear seats you have fitted. If there is no button or pull lever visible you will have to get physical with the back seat. You will need to lever the corner of the back seat forward, insert your arm and trip the release with your finger.

I have a 2007 impala my trunk won't open and my seats Dnt fold how can I get to the trunk to change my tale light

On that model the only way to access the trunk when the latch has broken or has malfunctioned is by removing the entire rear seat assembly.
You need to pull the bottom section(the part you sit on) of the rear seat up and take it out of the car. Under the back section of the seat you will find a pair of bolts that hold the upright section of the seat to the car body. Remove the bolts and lift the seat back section up and remove it. Remove the protective layer and you can crawl into the trunk. You can then access the trunk latch from inside the trunk.

The vehicle should of course have been engineered with at least a narrow center fold down section of the seat from where you can access a manual trunk release . No doubt as a silly cost saving measure it was not designed this way.
