    There is no trunk spring. There are two torsion bars. If your car has not had the actual trunk lid replaced or a wing added, it is highly unlikely the torsion bars have failed.

    Have you changed trunk lids or added a wing?

    Does your car have a wing?

    By the way, if nothing happens when you pull the latch then the issue isn't the torsion bars. The lock should disengage whether the torsion bar is there, is too weak, or is entirely absent. Check the lock first, plus the inside safety release.

    If you are interested in checking the torsion bars see this thread for their correct mounting and orientation:

    The lock is in the trunk. There is a latch. Is it not disengaging?
