its more fiddly than hard before you start look st the cable where it joins the latch and start following it back toward the lever you may have to lift some floor mats etc and the cable should be secured with clips along the way if you think you can get it out take it with you when you go to buy the new 1 and make sure they are the same. if this helps please rate joe

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. I had no problems with the trunk when I bought it in February. It eventually got to the point that I would have to slam it hard to get it to latch. Now it won't latch at...

I do believe the latch is NOT adjustable while the striker which the latch closes onto has adjustment to it. Not the part on the trunk lid but the part in the trunk, it should have two bolts and when loosened the striker should move around. May or may not be enough for what you need but should have something.

hope this helps

Our 2003 Lincoln Towncar trunk has suddenly began not shutting properly. When it closes, it does not fully close to a seal. Upon our troubleshooting we feel the mechanism which brings the trunk to a full...

Once the lid is latched there is a motor that pulls the latch assembly down to finish closing the lid.

I would check the latch mechinism make sure it's not moving around on you like the bolts have loosened or that anything is bent. Also there is a switch in the mechanism that activates it to finish closing as well, open the trunk and close the jaw on the lock with a screwdriver or something similar, and see if you can hear the motor run, if not I would place blame on the switch or the motor itself. And as always I would check for loose / broke wires or a bad ground in the immeidate vicinity of the mechanism.

How do you replace trunk latch on 2003 vw new Beetle

It needs to be replaced from the inside of your trunk lid. Remove the panel and the latch mecanism will be exposed. It's a tight fit, and you need to be sure that the actuator is lined up properly in order for it to trigger the release mechanism. A doable fix for someone mechanically inclined.

Jetta 2003, trunk won't lock

More than likely the spring inside the latch has come undone. To save some money you can remove the latch from the trunk, open the latch and reset the spring. To Remove the latch you will need to remove the carpeted cover on the trunk lid (there are about 10-15 phillips screws holding it on.) Once the cover is off disconnect the rod going to the latch by opening up the clip thats connected to the actuator. Disconnect the wire harness, Remove the 2 10mm Nuts holding the latch to the lid. Remove the black plastic cover on the latch and remove the electrical piece (the plastic cover wraps over the latch and is secured buy 2 plastic pressure snaps). Look down into the latch and you should see a small spring...on my Jetta the spring wasn't connected. take a small pointed object ( I used a light tester) and reattch the spring to the black hook. Mine had some broken plastic in it and After I removed that it worked fine. Once the spring is back into place reassemble the trunk and you should be good to go. No money spent, and it only takes about a half hour or 45 mins to do.

Release lever and back lock don't open my trunk..

This sounds like a similar problem I had with my driver's door last summer. Its most likely the latch mechanism. It isnt very difficult to replace if you take your time and dont get too excited if you run into difficulties. The downside to your problem is you will have to get the part from a GM dealer, it SHOULD only run you about $60, don't quote me on this it's just an estimate based on prices where I live and a small markup based on what I pay at a discount.

Now as far as replacing it, your best bet would be to pickup a repair manual at your local auto parts store. Chilton's seems to be the favorite because of the detail they put into their instructions... if anyone in your area sells them (around here they are hard to come by) I use Haynes manuals because they are easy to find, and not horribly high priced (Advance Auto Parts sells them for around $20) . As far as opening your trunk goes, if you have fold down back seats, your best bet would be to climb into the trunk with a flashlight and screwdriver, and carefully try to pop the latch from inside.

I hope at least some of this helps. GOOD LUCK!
