It looks like there is a way to open some sort of compartment behind the seats. There are hand grips to lift up, but it doesnt lift. My speakers are in that panel and would like to be able to access them from underneath.

Also, if I can lift it up, is there any space under there??

i had to jerk up like it weighed a ton...the clips were so tight!!
after i had removed it once, it lifts out a lot easier.

there is not a lot of usable space under there.
it looks like any back seat area with the seat removed.....a tunnel hump and two small insets..
hope that helps

and did i say ours is a 1973?

Instead of using the handles in the front of the parcel shelf,

try lifting it by one of it's back corners. I usually pinch the fabric and pull upwards very carefully I don't 'unglue' anything. It lifts easy.

I know this is not the right way, but can't find any other way in which I don't have to pull so hard I am afraid I will brake sthg...

Regards

If you are talking about the "package" shelf. There are two metal clips just to the outside of each handhold. Take a thin plastic/metal shim or blade and push in to release the clips.
