Okay, as some of you already know, for the past several months I've been having a problem with my trunk. I haven't had a chance to bring it in, but I figured I'd describe the problem as best I could here before going to the dealer to see if anyone has any thoughts.

When I need to open my trunk, I have to push the button (either on the trunk or on the remote) anywhere between 3 and 9 times to actually get the trunk open. The first time I press the button it's as if I didn't press it at all. The second time I press the button I can hear the latch trying to release, only not completely. Finally, on whatever press the latch releases, it releases as if there was nothing wrong with it.

hey dirn when you open the trunk look on each side of the hatch. there should be a spring that is covered in plastic that is sticking down. turn it either way and pull and it should pop out. when i took mine out it was a bit bent but then when i put it back in, in a different position it was fine. not a great fix but it might help out until you can bring it in. i did this and it has never happened again!!

Thanks Jaysen, it's been raining all day, so I don't know if I'll get to try it tonight or not. I'll let you know if it works though

Dirn, when you get around to pulling those caps off, there's another thing you might try. Put a penny or two in each one of those caps and see how that works. I've heard of a couple of people doing that and they said it worked great. I haven't gotten that desperate yet since my trunk problem has gone into remission for the moment.

Just my .02!
Get it!
