Trunk on 2007 malibu won't stay up when open


If there are gas struts involved then have them re-gassed. If there are springs (long bars between the hinges) then they can be adjusted to give more strength to hold the lid open

Trunk won't stay up 1996 chevy cavalier


You have two shock like openers for the trunk lid. \one on each side. They loose their ability to hold open the trunk over time. U can buy them at most auto parts stores like Auto Zone.

Lebaron trunk doesn't stay up


There are rods that hold open the trunk they look like a small piston. They get weak over time and will not hold open trunk lid. You can buy them at any auto parts store. Hope this helps

How to fix the torque bar located in the trunk lid


You need to position the spring with the bushing on it against the hinge and set it into the slot just under the panel behind your backglass. On the opposite side, pull the end into say the middle hole for starters and make sure it is seated completely. Do the same for the other side, open the trunk and make sure it stays open, if not you can adjust it by moving your torsion springs to the next hole.

How do you replace shocks on 1991 buick skylark


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Fig. 1: After you open the trunk lid, use a suitable prytool to remove the trim cover 86888036.jpg
Fig. 2: Some vehicles have a cover which must be removed to access the shock retaining nuts 86888037.jpg
Fig. 3: Unfasten the upper shock attaching nuts 86888038.jpg
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Open the trunk lid and remove the trim cover. If equipped, remove the nut cover.
  3. Remove the upper shock attaching nut(s). If removing both shocks, remove one at a time.
  4. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  5. Unfasten the lower shock absorber mounting bolts. One wrench will have to be placed on the bolt head side to retain the bolt as you loosen the nut. Usually a 15mm wrench is used to remove them. To install: Fig. 4: After the vehicle is raised and safely supported, use a socket to unfasten the lower retaining bolt 86888039.jpg
    Fig. 5: Remove the retaining bolt, then . . . 86888040.jpg
    Fig. 6: . . . remove the shock absorber assembly from the vehicle 86888041.jpg
  6. Connect the shock absorbers at the lower attachment and install the attaching bolt.
  7. Lower the vehicle enough to guide the shock absorber upper stud through the body opening, then fasten the upper shock absorber attaching nut loosely. Tighten the lower shock absorber mounting bolt to 35 ft. lbs. (47 Nm).
  8. Remove the axle support, then carefully lower the vehicle. Tighten the shock absorber upper nut to 21 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
  9. If equipped, install the retaining nut cover, then install the rear trim cover. Close the trunk lid.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.

2004 cts cadillac trunk will not open with remote or with button on drivers door.


if you here a clicking sound when you push the remote or the drivers button then the solenoid and fuse are probably o.k. lubricate the trunk lid catch and operate the latch a few times, also check the tension on the trunk itself , it should lift up part of the way by itself, if not 1. lubricate the hinges and move trunk lid up and down. if still bad 2. if it has a tension rod adjust the rod to a stronger setting if it has gas shocks, 3.replace shocks. if no click and fuse is good solenoid may be bad

2000 Lexus ES300 trunk lid does not fit right on 2001 Lexus ES300


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

Trunk lid is very stiff to open/close


the hinges for the trunk will need replacing. not the shocks. about $60 a piece from VW. do it yourself about 4 bolts. just get someone to hold the trunk for you. its not necessary to paint the new hinges
