Question about 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i SE Sedan

1 Answer

Trunk on my 07 legacy sedan will not close.

The trunk on my legacy will not close. It goes all the way into the position it is supposed to be in but doesn't stay in place and pops open while driving. I don't know if the latch is broken or stuck but it goes into place and doesn't stay there. My trunk is now permanently open and flies up and down on every bump i hit.

SOURCE: Can not get in the trunk. The handle is broken.

Legacy, right? Can you tilt the backseats' backrests forward? like when you want to transport something big in the trunk... I suppose the sedan has this similarly to the station wagon. 
Use a pocket torch to look for the lock body from inside and there should be a small button or better a lever that you have no clue what it is there for, right? try to push it or pull it from ech side untill it opens. 
It is actually there to prevent transporting people in the trunk against their will(unlike the movies, where it is possible).

Feel free to send any feedback

SOURCE: Trunk problem

Rust builds up on the handle on the outside. A few small drops of oil usually will allow it to return to the proper position. Hope this helps and have a great day.

How to fix the torque bar located in the trunk lid


You need to position the spring with the bushing on it against the hinge and set it into the slot just under the panel behind your backglass. On the opposite side, pull the end into say the middle hole for starters and make sure it is seated completely. Do the same for the other side, open the trunk and make sure it stays open, if not you can adjust it by moving your torsion springs to the next hole.

My Chevy 2,000 Mailbu will not start. Sometimes when I try to start it the trunk will pop open. Can you please help?!


Its time to replace the battery. This is common in Chevy cars, if the battery goes bad it doesn't hold a charge anymore. Whats happening in your case is the low voltage isn't keeping the trunk relay closed. When you turn the key all the juice goes to the stater and lets the truck pop open. Just to prove my point, give it a jump start and it will fire right up and the trunk will stay closed.

My 1999 caliver trunk is not closeing no more,why


have a look at the trunk latch mechanism.sometimes they get closed when they should be open(the fingers that lock the trunk lid closed).if its in the closed position just unlock the trunk with the key and use something to pop open the lock(fingers) then the trunk will close again.

Automatic truck pull down


do you mean it won't close....or it won't stay closed ? check the latch inside the trunk....sometimes it may be in the locked position already....in which case the ring that goes into it can not.....sometimes just "unlocking it with the key will reset the latch into the open position....and a bit of oil on the moving parts can work...

I accidentally pulled the interior trunk release of 2008 volkswag


Try a screw driver,and release the trunk release at the same time and unsnap the latch,the latch thinks it is closed,because the latch never opened back up to allow the striker to go in it and trigger the latch to close,the latch is in closed mode,you will have to manually unlatch the latch sort of speak.
