What tool is needed to remove this...

Recommended Posts

This is the piece on the drivers side that has the manual trunk/engine release..

And memory seats...

There are three holes I peeked in one and can't tell what kind of screw, nut, hex, whatever is in there.. its also way in there so a long head is needed to get to it..

The one in the middle may be difficult to get to... does the seat have to come out?

Here is a pic of the whole piece out of the car...(replacing the last speckled grey piece in the car)


Pic of the slot where screw goes in..

You had me confused as I could not understand why you needed to know how to remove the lever assembly when your picture shows it out of the car. That is the one you want to put in. Right?

You must have alreafdy removed the 3 plastic plugs. Behind each plug - burried deep - is an allen bolt. 5mm if I remember correctly. You unscrew each allen bolt just a few turns - no need to take them all the way out.

You need a long allen wrench. I used the standard L shaped one. The allen bit on my 3/8" socket was not long enough. The seat was out when we did it.

After you undo each allen screw it will still take some effort to pull the assembly up. When you put the new one in make sure the bent wire thing goes into the white plastic thing. The white plastic thing is hooked up to the solenoid that locks the levers.

Well I figured it all out this morning before I saw your post, yes your correct that pic was of the new one going in.. I also repainted the silver levers, so I had to remove those as well. The tip about not remove the screws completely would have helped me, but I figured out how to screw them back in and then put the piece back.. Thanks again!!

I went to Pep Boys, and I found a silver wheel paint, it looks great.. even better then the stock look.. I will take some photos and post them

I taped up the area where the black logo of the trunk.hood is... some of the black came off when I pulled the tape off. but it still looks ok..
