SOURCE: Trunk will not stay open on its own

You can go to a auto dismantler and buy a used one that will be cheeper than a new one. They are not too hard to install if you are strong and not afraid to climb into the trunk. Requires two people to do it. one to hold the trunk up all the way and the other to get in and snap the spring back into place. You place the spring end in position first then locate the torsion end and pushup and back and snap it in place. The only hitch is if the spring didn't break and the bracket itself did, then you will need a body shop to reweld and repair the mounting bracket. Option #2, get a stick and use it to prop up and hold the trunk open when you are using it. Good Luck, RAC

My trunk will not stay locked

If you have factory alarm on it its is the trunk latch for some reason needs to be adjusted. anything gets packed in the trunk and it was hard to close it will put it out of alignment. I also think its the electrical issues they releases the latch if theres a serge in the system or batterie needs replacement or possibilty and or the alternator have it checked sounds,
Fun nylon but these cars trip out if the power is not all there.

My keyless trunk entry broke a while back and now my lever by the floor isn't working nor is the child safety lever in the trunk. any way else to pop it open

Get a new key fob on line cheap and follow the programming instructions. You can do it yourself and after you have access you can fix the other issues.

Replacing trunk lid and hinges

yes but most can be done by ahnd or witha vice grips. Just try to lift the rod and see how much tension you have. you only should have to lift about an inch to get it out of the slot and then release the tension.

How to install trunk lid torsion bars

one of those bars come out of its bracket ( on my 89 cougar)
none of the local shops would touch it, no even the body shops.
so i just connect one end to the lid, like normal, then with a pry bar, pryed out the other end and put in a small block of wood (two by four) then released the pry bar. took another bite pryed it out again then added another block until i got the desired spring back into the torsion rod. yes that's (jury rigged) but my trunk works almost like it should. if you need i can send you a picture of what i did.

How to install trunk lid torsion bars

I have a 2006 Saturn Ion. There are two torque bars in the trunk. One has the insulation on it and the other comes without insulation. Using a bungee cord, I hooked one end above my license plate in a gap and the other end I just stretched until it reached my back door and I shut the door on it. That is how I held the trunk up. Next, I took the rod without the insulation and put the rounded loop part of the bar to the right of the trunk. I rested the other end of the bar that has the squared loop in the middle slit toward the left side of the trunk. I then used one hand to lower the trunk a little to get the right end in place easier. There is the very end of the bar on the right side of the trunk that goes in the slit on the roof of the trunk, the rounded loop that goes under that hook on the bar of the trunk, and just to the left of that loop where the rounded part becomes straight again that goes on the upper most slit just under the roof of the trunk. After all that is in place, go to the left side of the trunk near the three slits and push up as hard as you can to get the left part of the bar to rest on the lower slit and then you\'re snapped in. Repeat for the piece with the insulation on it but reverse what I said about right and left side. You have to install the pieces in that particular order or it won\'t work out. You might say Jesus Christ a few times too but have patience. It is worth it.
