Default can the rear seat go down on a rio?

I have a 2004 rio four door sedan.
Can the rear seat go down for trunk access?

if not is there a work around so that it could be removed and reinstalled easy?

Thanks

The rear seat DOES NOT fold down on the 2004 Rio sedan. To remove it, you need to remove the rear shelf and un bolt it from the structure of the car.

It can be removed easy. What I did was I removed the bolts on the bottom of the back seat and the cushion slides up. I then reinstalled the middle bolt then put the cushion back after so the metal loop is on top of the bolt head.

Please don't describe something you do not know how to do. This is completely wrong. Like Antoniocool says it is super easy, and could be done it a few minutes.

I believe "p mori7" was referring to the back cushion and "Antoniocool" was referring to the seat cushion.

You have to remove the seat bottom first regardless. The the back pretty much falls off. There is no structural supports involved in the rear seat. It's a 5 minutes job to remove the whole thing, bottom cushion, back cushion, and another 30 seconds to unbolt the seat belts.
