How do you fold down the rear seat of a 2010 Chevy Impala?

Customer Question

How do you fold down the rear seat of a 2010 Chevy Impala?

If you have the long bench I don't think you can fold the rear seat down. It will only fold down if you have the split rear bench. Which model do you have?

I can send instructions for removing the entire seat if you want to try that.

I don't have the split rear bench. It's the LT model if I'm not mistaken. I am trying to open the trunk myself. Is there any way to do that without removing the seat? But yes please send those instructions as well
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Does your model have the touch sensitive pad or the key hole? The 2010 impala had both options available.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
For the trunk? No key hole. If you talking about to open the car door, key hole as well

Here are the diagrams for removing the seat cushion and back:

So this model just has the trunk release switch and no key hole on the trunk then.

The release switch doesn't seem to be working?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not able to find the switch. And it looks like in order for me to do that I'd have to remove the seat completed and the back of it correct?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

Yes. You would have to remove the bottom portion and then the back.

The trunk release button should be right next to the headlight switch:

Would I be able to put a lock and key on the trunk for this model?
Expert:  Jared D replied 1 year ago.

It would require some custom body work, but it could be done. The police model has a lock and key. Rather than custom body work you might be able to find an old police model in a salvage yard and swap the trunk, but then the paint might not match.
