  • You gonna half to break into the decklid or break in through the rear shelf to lay the seats down. The seats must be laid down to gain access to the trunk from inside the vehicle. You also cant access the backrest hinges with the seats up.

So, the commercial about getting sandwiched between vehicles and escaping through the trunk is a bunch of whoee?

The shelf above the rear seat is a metal panel is'nt it?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 9 years ago.
The shelf is metal. This is why breaking through the deck lid to access the fold down seat latches is the better option. If you were in a wreck I would let the jaws of life just cut the roof off.
