so yesterday i posted i countldnt get into my trunk, now before you ask questions let me tell you why. :p

- my trunk button dont work at the moment as my fuse is loose or it needs a new one.

- my key goes in the back but doesnt turn because the guy i bought it off didnt use the trunk.

so today i made it my goal to get my trunk open somehow, and with lots of suggestions in my last post, i found a easier way, at first i grabbed a stick and reached between the seats and tried to pull the emergency yellow thing, nothing.

so then i just happened to look up, and BAM! i seen the seat levers to fold the seats, so i poked that with the stick and TADA! presto, the seats were down and i could pop my trunk! :)

so word the wise, if you ever cant get into your trunk for whatever reasin, and the levers for the back seats are in the back, here you go :)

Glad you figured it out. I didn't know you could put a stick between the two seat halves or I would have suggested that. The rear seats have a latch release for the trunk, so you can easily fold the seats down without getting into the car first. Congrats, glad that worked for ya.

When I went to U Auto Pull it to get the wingless trunk lid the donor car's trunk was latched shut, of course with no batt the button wont pop it, so my firefighter skills kicked in and I tore the rear seats out and crawled through to hit the e latch. Keep in mind this car was filled to the brim with junk.
