Did someone flick it while open? the latch basically closes on itself when shut so if it looks like there is a bar in the way then pry it down and left and it will look like an upside down u, then shut it and it should latch.

Unlock trunk toyota camry 2004

Deck Lid could be jammed or defective latch. Crawl through to trunk and see if pull latch releases it. Have someone lift on the trunk or push down outside while doing it. WD 40 could help or even better spray with white lithium grease spray. 4 or 5 dollars at auto store.

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

I have a 2004 chevy cavalier and the trunk latch won't click into place and close fully, therefore the trunk won't close fully.

yes that could be the problem. try this putt your key in to the lock and turn it to unlock it , check to see if latch is open ,while still holding the key in the unlock position close the trunk and relock it with the key while pushing down on the hood at the same time. replace the lock when you can .there is no quick fix for this unless u use a bungee cord for it .

Trunk won't open

The actuator may sound as though it is working but the latch could be damaged or misaligned. Also, the actuator could be too weak to operate the latch. If it is necessary to replace the actuator, your Camry is old enough to make a junkyard a likely source.

How to change the turn signal baulb in the rear light on my 2004 chevy cav

Hi, I am not familar with the 2004 Caviler; however, I can give you some suggestions on how to get this lanp/bulb replaced. First, look in the trunk. With some cars, you can access these lamps from the inside of the trunk. If access to these rear lamps this is not possible through the trunk, then look at the actual light assembly from the outside. Some cars will allow access to therse rear lampsfrom the outside by removing a few screws and then pulling out the entire light assembly. Good Luck!
