Question about 2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5i SE Sedan

Open Question

My trunk will not close on my 07 legacy sedan.

When I try to close the trunk on my legacy it feels like the trunk goes where it is supposed to go but will not stay there. I'm wondering if it is the latch or if my release cable isn't doing what its supposed to do. But it will close all of the way and then just not stay shut like there is not latch on it.

SOURCE: Latch for hatch of my '07 Subaru is closed with gate open

Unfortunately, you will have to remove the panel of the door, Use flathead screwdriver to pry open. It is very likely the spring fell off.

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.

SOURCE: 1998 subaru legacy hood latch is broken :(

tre spring is on the latch itself,my guess is that the latch needs a little lube,work the area of the latch that the cable slides into with a screwdriver,it should spring back after you lube it

I have a 1993 subaru legacy l sedan, somebody tried to break into my trunk and now the release wont work.


You can get to it by the back seats. They have releases at the base of the headrests, just pull them out. They are on small metal pins and sometimes the pulleys come out, so you might have to use pliers. Hope this helps!

This is easy, first locate the top button on the center console but do not push yet, next the lever on the front off the top, reach your right hand up and grab lever and pull down and twist counter clock wise to unlock it, you may feel roof pop up a little then with roof unlocked push handle back into its slot, next is push button and hold, the roof will start to open and the trunk will start to open and the roof will store away i the trunk,, make sure trunk is empty at first use, then with the top down and trunk closed you are done, open the trunk just to look inside to see where the top goes, this is to make sure nothing gets in the way of the roof, i cant remember if area is blocked off or not but this is a good idea just so you know.
To close the roof you hit and hold the button and roof will come out of the trunk area automaticlly the roof will end up closed all you do is pull lever down then pull on lever to close roof all the way untwist lever and it will go into lock, you will feel this, once it is in the lock groove you will twist lever to the right to lock it, with it locked you then push lever back into its slot. good day

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).

2007 Hyundai Sonata - Trunk is very hard to open


Is it stuck or just feel very heavy? If it is just feeling very heavy than the trunk struts need replacing. Your local part store might be helpful and install them for you if you purchase them there. If it feels like it is getting stuck on something the latch might need a little adjusting on the ring part. If this is the case then to adjust you usually loosen so it can move with little force but not too loose and open and shut trunk a few times and open one more time slowly and then tighten bolts being careful not to move latch. Hope this helps.
