Q: Q: Trunk not closing

asked by on

The trunk is not closing on my car.

The latch is most likely to blame. The latch is on the trunk lid, the striker is bolted to the bottom. Check the lever in the latch is not partially closed. Have someone hold the trunk release lever, take a pen or key, try to flip down the lever in the “U” shaped channel the striker goes in down. Also, make sure the trunk release lever or the cable are not stuck. I would suggest having a qualified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come and diagnose why your trunk won’t close and replace your trunk latch if necessary.
