Chevy Impala: How to Open the Trunk

How to Open the Trunk

Impala 2006 – 2012 models

There are definitely two ways to open the trunk of an Impala… some even say there are three! Here’s how to get in:

Method 1

  1. Have a look at the factory key fob, click the center button (see image above).
  2. You should hear a “clunk”.
  3. Move to the rear of the car, the trunk will be jarred. Pull up on the lid lightly, it should stay up from a hydraulic bar on the right.
  4. When you’re finished, pull down lightly with one hand while supporting with the other.
  5. When the lid is a few inches from being closed, press down firmly and the lid will clunk shut.

 

Method 2

  1. Look to the left of the steering wheel, there’s a set of buttons and knobs on a panel.
  2. Click the button with the car icon. It’s on the upper right side of the panel (see image above).
  3. You should hear a “clunk”.
  4. Move to the rear of the car, the trunk will be jarred. Pull up on the lid lightly, it should stay up from a hydraulic bar on the right.
  5. When you’re finished, pull down lightly with one hand while supporting with the other.
  6. When the lid is a few inches from being closed, press down firmly and the lid will clunk shut.

NOTE: The third method is entering the trunk from inside the car. Find instructions on how to do this by clicking here!
