Trunk latch not latching on...
Another problem, more of an annoying problem than a real mechanical problem and I hope someone has run into this before...
Recently my trunk would decide not to latch onto the hook to stay closed.
It doesn't look like something broke off of the latching mechanism. The metal latch would sometimes be in the close position when I open it, so it would hit the bar it latches on it and not close. I would then move the latch into the "open" position and try to close it, but then the latch doesn't move to it's locking position.
When this happens I mess around with the latch and the bottom part of the trunk and somehow it decides to close.
This has happened to me twice. The second time it did it and after I got it working, the trunk latch next to my drivers seat no longer opens it, so I dare not open my trunk with my keys.
It's very annoying when going grocery shopping and can't put your stuff in the trunk.
