Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Hi, I have a 2004 Corolla. I shut the trunk a little too hard and broke the latch. It's the part attached to the trunk itself. I am having trouble located a replacement on the web. Can you help? Thank you

I think your talking about the "loop" that bolts to the trunk lid. If thats the case then you will find that that part is a "dealer only" item. You might have some luck finding one in a salvage yard.

Trunk light will not turn off


Trunk lights usually turn off through the latch which is located in the trunk lid. It would be located to the inside of the trunk under the license plate. There should be some wires going to the mechanism. You can open the trunk and use a screwdriver to activate the latch and simulate what happens when the trunk is shut. Move the latch back and forth a little and see what happens. There may be a bad connection or faulty latch mechanism.

Cant open trunk


Hi Kathleen lets try with a spare key to unlock trunk if that fails try with any key and a little WD 40. If none of these suggestions work then I'm gonna say that the rod that connects the key to the latch is disconnected or damaged. Gonna require pulling down rear seats using a flashlight, pulling down carpet that is in center of trunk above the latch and remove either 2 or 3 (amount)10 or 8mm (size)bolts that holds latch to inside of trunklid . Once removed the latch will stay on the lock hoop and the trunk should open. Afterwards you have to inspect the trunk lid to determine whether the clip that hold the rod is damaged and needs replacement. Good luck

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 .

The trunk latch on my 2004 caviler won't latch


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.

2004 TOYOTA COROLLA TRUNK


I have a corolla 2003 and I had the same problem. I turned the key to the left and the lock turned left, engaging the valet parking mechanism. I could not turn the key to the right and could not get access to the trunk because the lever next to the driver seat was disengaged.
The way I solved this problem is as follow:on the back driver seat I pulled the back seat forward to leave an opening and snick my arm in the trunck. Then I grabbed the cable used to latch the seat and I pulled forward, i.e. toward the front of the car. The cable is connectred to the trunck so that it can be disconnected easily if pulled towards the front. If you pull towards the back it will remain attached to the trunck. So grab the cable an pull towards the front, and it will release itself. Since the cable is flexible, you can pull it out of the trunk from the same the opening you put your arm, and then disenagage the driver back seat. Fold forward the back seat and get into the trunk and use the lever in the latch of the trunck to open it. The turnk will open.

If the lock does not turn, you need to disconnect the lock from the mechanism, so that the driver seat lever can start working again. To do this, and with the trunk open, remove the cover holded by nine plastic pins. Do not break the pins. After removing the cover, you will see the lock holded by two nuts. Remove the nuts with a rachet. The lock will be loose, and disconnect the lever that connects the lock to the latch. At this point the driver seat lever will start working again. Close the trunk and verify that the driver seat lever opens the trunk. Now you can open and close the trunk , and have time to call the dealer for a new lock.
Good luck.
