Trunk access through back seat


Asked by Apr 10, 2014 at 01:16 AM about the 1995 Mercury Mystique 4 Dr GS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1995 Mercury Mystique GS w/a locked trunk . No key & trunk release cable ,
by drivers seat , is non responsive . I got the vertical back seats off but can't get the
horizontal back seats out . The brackets & screws are recessed under the horizontal
back seat ( 2 screw each on 3 brackets , got the 3 visible & accessible screw/bolts off
) . I can't even get my socket bit on the recessed screws/bolts . What's the trick here ?
What am I missing ? How do I get these damn t50 bolts off ?

vertical is up and down, if you got those out you should have access, try pulling the cable release wide open while pushing up and down on the trunk lid a few times,


Your right, I got the vertical & horizontal seats mixed up. Still unable to access remaining bolts to completely remove backseat. Truck was eventually opened with space & depth keys from locksmith, spare key was made..
