Help with seat removal on my 91 Prizm

01-17-2006, 10:59 AM
Someone tried to break into the trunk of my 91 Geo prizm. Why? I have no idea. But now the lock is totally messed up and on my Geo, there is no trunk release. So, I want to know if there's a way to remove the back seat because also the seats don't have a release either. I wouldn't care usually, but I need stuff in my trunk. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hope it's not too late.....I have a 94 prizm and have had other cars as well but when it comes to removing the back seat, it's pretty much the same for most cars. Obviously your seats don't fold down cuz you woulda tried that already.....all you have to do is.....start with the bottom seat first. Start on one end and slide your hand underneath and lift directly up. The seat should have 2 or 3 snap ons holding it in place. (if you have never removed the seats before, it might feel like you're gonna break the seat. Trust me you wont, keep lifting). Once you have removed the bottom seat, you might notice some bolts holding down the back seat. Nothing your rachet set can't handle. You might have 2-3 bolts also. Once you remove the back seat there might be a plastic divider (94 prizm has one, yours might not). There's nothing holding the divider and therefore easy to remove. After that....VIOLA!! You're in your trunk.

good luck!

Thanks for the info. But it's a tad too late. I ended up breaking one side. But thanks!

Ouch!! Sorry to hear about your seat. I recently replaced all of my seats in my car from a 97 prizm. (mine's a 94). They are virtually new!! I went to a "You-Pull-It" junk yard and paid $39 for all of them. The rear seat only cost me $12.99. Something to consider!!
