Thanks for the reply. I spent no less than two hours trying to find the elusive tabs and had no success. The simply is nothing there to push in. All this @#$^! trouble just to check a fuse is utterly ridiculous. There is no such thing as a simple fix on this car.

Thanks for the link to help remove the rear seats. I'm running into a problem with getting the plastic side cover off. The link explains how to remove the power buttons and the two screws in that area. It goes on to say that you need to push in the tabs near the seat belt fastener and lift up to get the cover off. What two tabs would this be? I've pushed on everything near the fastener and it isn't budging. I'm afraid it is going to break. What specifically do I have to do to get this side cover off? Thanks in advance, Mark

there are tabs attached to the inside of the plastic cover near the bottom of the seat belt catch. Hard to see - pretty much have to try and do it by feel. Just push them away from the seat belt catch. Most are broken at some point anyway. Removal and replacement is easier if one breaks off anyway in my opinion.
