Question about 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier
02 chevy cavalier-trunk wont shut. All parts appear to be in working order-but latch wont hold trunk close-it goes to grab the latch-but doenst lock it to hold closed-should I replace the whole assembly? or is it easier to fix than that?
Make sure it is not binding/sticking where you pull the release cable.
Drench the entire works in WD-40. Push it back and forth until it moves with no resistance.
Make sure the part that hooks onto the latch hasn't come loose enough to not slide over when it makes contact.
If that doesn't work, take the whole thing off. You'll have to anyway to replace it. Chances are with it disassembled you'll see what's wrong.
