I read the title here and thought "Must be some special Corvette, if it has a rear seat"...... :boogie I know, I'm a smart a$$.

joshua delamater on JustAnswer walked me through my issue and it is resolved...the problem was that the carpet was covering the actual hex bolt. i pulled that carpet up on the wall area behind the seats and there was the bolt.​
