I just bought a 1991 Spirit from an elderly lady. The rear seat latches that
open the seatbacks to the trunk seem to be stuck in the locked
position....the latches only come up about half-way. Each latch has a lock
setting in front of it, and the lock-slot is in the horizontal position. I
have used a large-blade standard screw-driver to try to open the lock into
the vertical position, which is suppose to
de-activate the lock function ( as I've seen in other Spirits), but no
matter how hard I turn the screwdriver clock-wise, I can only get the
lock-slot into a 45 degree position, which does not unlock the latches. I
have refered to the owner's manual, but there is nothing in there to
describe how to unlock those seat latches.
Anybody out there have any suggestions?
