Trunk Release

Is the cable adjustable for the trunk release lever? All of a sudden mine doesn't work. It doesn't feel like the cable broke, it feels like it came lose. Haven't had a chance to look into this yet, so I was hoping someone here might know

Not that I know of. I had to keep crawling into my trunk to release it with the kidknapp handle, than came to find out I had to flip the switch on the latch. My problem was solved. Is this your issue, or are you having a different one?

That could be it. I haven't really looked into it yet. I'll inspect it all tomorrow. All I know is it worked fine one day, and the next it didn't. I can still feel a little tension on the lever when I pull on it so I know the cable didn't break. Something has come lose somewhere, I just have to find it I s'pose

Get it to pop, maybe you will have to do what i did and crawl in through the seat to hit that handle. Once its poped, go to the trunk deck and mess with the latch section on that. That is where that safety latch is. boggles me that they would put one on there like that, but they did.
GL.............hope this helps you!

Just found this, now I can remain lazy and not go out and snap shots for you.
What is circled is what I am talking about


I cant open my trunk

This is the latch handle you have to wiggle back too in your trunk to get it opened

Once I knew what I was looking for it took almost three seconds to resolve the problem. Good thing it didn't have teeth or it would have bit me when I was looking at it the other day lol
