Hey all... I know I can't be the only one that had a trunk that took a little bit of a slam to get closed...
I decided to do something about it and adjusted the striker/release assembly (mounted to the body).
It took a 12mm socket, a ratchet and some trial and error. Must have been 5 minutes total and I'm VERY pleased with the results. The trunk closes without any pressure and pulling the lever inside the car to release the trunk is BUTTAH!
On my particular car I just loosened the 12mm bolts that hold the trunk striker and release assembly onto the body of the car (in the trunk cavity) and moved it to the TOP (up!) of it's travel. Bolted it back down and voila!
I know I've heard people complaining about trunk effort before. Why not give this a shot?
