my trunk is stuck.. i wanted to access it from behind.
is there no key hole? try pressing down on the trunk while using the key or sit on the edge of the trunk lid while turning the key. did you put something in there and have to almost sit on the lid to close it?

there is no way in to the boot from the inside ! have you tried holding the button on your key fob ! ?[/QUOTE]

if you have the ski bag, unzip the side, stick your arm in the hole of it, then reach real far and up and see if you can find a handle. push it out towards the rear of your car and the seat folds down. no way to do it huh? learn your car.

Here's how to remove them easily:

- raise the headrest as high as it can go
- use a pair of pliers to rotate the shafts 45 degrees outboard (turn the left shaft clockwise and the right shaft counterclockwise)
- remove the headrest
