Re: Lid Came Off and I cant get it Back on right
This is not a small job. The lis is one of the first chassis pieces that is put in place, then the drive, boards, buttons and so forth.
Make sure that both tabs on the back of the optical door are still there. I've seen a few where one of the tabs breaks off and the lid just flops around. The small metal plate needs to have it's screws that will mount it on one side, and the spring needs to be there as well.
If you have a screwdriver and are very brave, you can repair this yourself. Otherwise it's a repair for the Insignia repair team.

I used to have 2 laundromats full of toploader Maytags... these will fill and do exactly what is happening to you if the LID SWITCH is not activating. Open and close the lid and listen for a clicking sound. Look a the rear edge of the lid... there is an indentation that is supposed to activate a small white switch in the that's attached to the top of the machine. Many times the lid will simply get bent.. someone sitting on the lid, standing on the lid... will be enough to throw it out of whack.
Close the lid and push on the center of the closed lid... will the machine work? Or carefully push a flatblade screwdriver tip between the lid and the switch to see if you can get it to activate.
Solution: Open the lid and apply firm pressure on the lid towards the back of the machine, while with the other hand push DOWN on the back edge of the lid...right where the indentation for the switch is... if you give it a slight tweak...you'll probably be back in business.
One other thing, if the lid switch isn't clicking...replace it.
All that is wrong is that the plunger that holds the lid down is likely siezed with old oil. If you are careful you can slowly insert 2 flat sided screw drivers under the front part of the lid on either side of the right and left side of the lid and slowly move them toward the middle , thus the plunger will likely give way and the lid will pop open.

to put on a trunk lid is very simple usually 4 bolts on the bottom near back window. As far as locating a trunk lid look under auto salvage in the yellow pages tell them what you need they can locate the part for you over their network. Anyone with a wrench will be able to install the lid as long as there is no other body damage
You cant raise the lid. You have to take the sides off the top panel, and unscrew the two phillip head screws. Then remove the two brass clips(very strong). Then pull the whole cabinet off. Then repair lid sw. Be carefull when putting cabinet back on, you have to make sure the back of cabinet goes on the rail with the clip into it, if you dont put back on right it will vibrate.
Inside your trunk on the left hand side there are two electric motors one drives the rooof lid and the other drives the roof, they can be engaged and disengaged independantly by small steel levers(THESE ARE LOCATED UNDER THE MATERIAL). once disengaged check if they work by standing and checking them while someone presses the roof button for you.
If they work and everything is fine you need to engage and disengage until they are in sync, When the roof lid is open you will also notice a small button under the roof lid catches this button allows the back part of the roof to drop and to tell the car that the roof lid is closed and it is now safe to let opne the trunk.
