Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
2002 Chevy Cavalier
The rod in the back of my trunk that goes horiz. from end to end broke on the driver's side when I pulled out some furniture. Now my trunk will not stay open on its own. About how much am I look at to fix it? Is it something I could fix myself?
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
