Default How do you collapse the rear seat of a 2004 Honda Accord EX?

I pull down the arm rest of the rear seat and see a key lock. It will only turn 1/4 of the way when I use my car key. What should I do next? I know it's the pull-through to the trunk but don't know how to open it.

There is also a key lock in the middle of the console behind the back seats, but my car key won't turn in it. I think this is the key to collapsing the rear seats, but I don't know how to do this either.

Please help!

Hmmm... Are you using the master key?

If you are not using the master key (the one withOUT the key fob), it may not let you access those areas, as those keys are intended as valet keys (you keep it on your key ring, and when you go to a valet, you lock the areas you don't want to give them access to, and give them the "valet key").

If you ARE using the master key (ones with key fob), the rear seat pass-through, will lock when turned one way (you can turn one way, counter-clockwise, and pull out the key after making a 90-degree turn), and while it's upright position, it's unlocked, and you can just push down the lever to drop-down the pass-through.

For the seats to collapse, you need insert the key and turn CLOCKWISE and while it's turned, you need to use your other hand to tug and PULL-DOWN the seat back, WHILE the key is turned.

In both instances, I believe it's turning CLOCKWISE to open and have it at the unlocked position, and for it to be in the locked position, and to lock it, it's COUNTER-CLOCKWISE.

1. Use the MASTER key only-- The grey valet key will not work.

2. Turn the lock to the vertical position (the ring around the key hole says which direction is lock and which direction is unlock).

3. In the TRUNK, there's an either white or yellow pull lever. Standing outside, behind the trunk, Pull the lever toward you and push the seat forward.... voila! you now have more trunk space!!
