Question about 2006 Kia Optima
My trunk will not stay shut i think the latch will not catch on it. it is like the latch is stuck open maybe
I bought some grease and sprayed all the trunk latch pieces but then I found out the problem. On the bottom part of the latch [not the lid but the attached part] there is a spring that has a rubber pad that has to be compressed when the lid closes to completely latch. I noticed the side of the latch on the trunk lid had scratches from the latch slipping past the rubber pad on the spring. The solution was easy. I took a screw driver and wedged the padded area so it would make direct contact and now it latches just fine.

If you think iti stuck then try placing oil/grease on it then manually move it if possible.
