To re-connect the bar. Have an assistant hold the lid while you reinstall it. I know this part is tricky.First look to the L/S and see a grduated adjustment fixture ( where the rod fell off from ) I would use a 6' 1/2" drive extention with a deep 1/2 " drive socket.The trunk torque bar ( spring ) has a app 3/8"wide end pointing down when held. Place socket/ext over end , applying pressure to turn the pint of the spring towards you, then latch in appropriate groove ( see R/S to gauge groove location ). A pipe can replace the tools. Hope it helps

Hi, try loosening the catch on the trunk lid but do not remove it and the lock mechanism, close the trunk lid but not fully, then pull the backseats down and climb into the trunk. Adjust the lock and latch until they meet up and lock together ( This will take some time and patience is essential). Fasten the Catch and Lock back up. Then retry opening and closing, if it still doesnt fit just do the same again, just needs a bit of adjustment.
hope this helps. jonno

Not that I know of, sorry! There should be a emergency latch release inside the trunk. But that will not help much on the outside.

grab a pair of pliers and twist it forward, back onto one of the four spots. watch out though, because when they are pulled up the tension is insane and can snap back REAL quick. i have a hole in my arm from one snapping back and catching me on the forearm when i was installing a new sub box.
