On the sides of the trunk there are rubber stops they screw in and out. Try screwing them in and this should fix your problem

Try opening the key hol the latch may have closed by accident if it has a pull cable pull the cable again and it should open the jaw for the rod to sit in and cause the latch to close down around the latching arm.

SOURCE: 97 Camry - trunk will not latch closed

Sparay lock assy with lubricant, and look where release cable attaches to lock assy, and push/pry it one way or the other to get it to move, opposite of where it is. Lube cable too.

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.

Trunk latch is in the locked position and i can,t close my trunk


The latch possibly needs flicking to the unlock position, press the button or operate the trunk handle as you flick the latch, it possibly hit something prior to hitting the keeper and put it in the lock position.

Trunk won't latch closed


So you know how to work the latch, and the latch is working.

Now you need to look and the holding bar, if you have to remover the plastic cover to see how it's bolted on do it.

Sounds like the bar moved down so the trunk hits the gasket before it can lock on the bar.

See if loosening the bar bolts will allow the bar to be raised just a hair.

Tailgate door wont latch


IT sounds like you closed the Trunk/ Liftgate with the Latch partway closed. Lube the Latch and hopefully it is not bent. If it is not latching, you can try and ensure it is aligned propery (use a piece of Tape and see where it is hitting the STRIKER...

If not, you are going to be replacing the Latching Mechanism.

Trunk wont open unless someones pressing the button and someones pulling up on the trunk


maybe the locking mechanism which latches the trunk closed needs to be adjusted a little more loosly (move the latch so that it engages sooner as you close the trunk) - do this by loosening 2-3 bolts to move the latch.

Trunk wont close tight


This car should be equipped with a trunk closing motor. If they wear out they will not pull the trunk firmly closed. If you have a standard latch or other you can try to adjust it by 1) open trunk 2) loosen the two bolts that hold the latch to the trunk lid and moving the latch just slightly higher and retightening the bolts. A couple of tries should do it. Thanks for asking at Fixya.com.

Rear trunk wont close, power trunk wont close mechanisms seem to be fine just wont latch


You can adjust the trunk lid by loosening the bolts at the hinges. If that wont work then there is a micro switch incorporated within the trunk latch. You will need to replace the entire latch unit unfortunatly.
