What is the Trunk Latch all about?

The trunk latch is the mechanism that holds a trunk closed. When the trunk latch is engaged, the trunk can only be opened by a handheld remote or a key.

In most newer cars, a trunk latch works much the same as a door latch. Generally, two components make up the trunk latch: the U shaped anchor, which sits in the frame of the vehicle, and the latching mechanism in the lid to the trunk. Either or both pieces could fail, causing the trunk latch to malfunction. The trunk latch can be triggered with the same handheld remote that opens the car door.

Older cars generally use a cylinder system that can be opened with a key. This system operates using a cylinder and striker, and the key that is used generally matches the door locks. The latch that holds the trunk locked is located in the striker.

Keep in mind:

  • While this may not seem like a serious issue, if the trunk latch opens suddenly in traffic, debris could be blown out of your trunk and into the path of other vehicles.

How it's done:

  • The trunk latch is verified to be needing replaced
  • The defective trunk latch is removed
  • The new trunk latch is installed
  • The inside trim panel is reinstalled to complete repair
  • The trunk is checked for proper operation

Our recommendation:

If you suspect that the trunk latch has failed, or is about to fail, call our expert mechanics to diagnose the trunk latch. There are different components that make up the trunk latch, so it’s important to know which part is failing before repairs are begun.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Trunk Latch?

  • Trunk won’t stay closed
  • Trunk has to be slammed hard to get the latch to engage
  • Latch comes open if the car is jostled, such as hitting a bump or stopping suddenly

How important is this service?

While it may not be a huge deal to the driver, it will be a huge deal to anyone who ends up with a trunk load of groceries in their path if items are blown out of an open trunk. Any items secured in the trunk may not be safe.
