If I were to remove the rear seat-backs, would I see the braces and 'holes' leading to the trunk, or is there an additional 'layer'? If I could see through, I could at least take a look at the part from the other side....
Paul, this is possible but I do not know the answer to your question. If memory serves me correctly, there is a piece of rubber insulation behid the seat. And I'm also thinking that there's another unit mounted on that wall, maybe for the roll-over protection. Just guessing here. You know, you should be able to call your local dealer & give him the vin# & he should be able to retrieve the passkey #. I searched for these units on ebay the other day & some had the # & some didn't. Some were ID'd as "FK" instead of "PK"
