the other day i had a keg in my trunk and it rolled around a bit. now my trunk won't close at all. it just hits the latch but it will not lock closed. does anybody have any ides what is wrong?
i did spray some wd40 on the latch and hook but that really didnt do anything. the keg did seem to hit the back somewhat hard. i did look and nothing did look damaged is there any good methods to align the latch with the hook cause i feel that could be the problem.
wut i would probably do is eyeball the latch / hook too align them as you slowly close the trunk.. my best bet is too be in the trunk thru the backseat.. use a flash light too see lol (obvi haha) you could pull the carpet away from the hook soo you can see the action take place.. it should align correctly.. if doesnt hook i would have too say the springs are locking up..
you should try too stick your finger into the trunk latch see if you can get that little hook too lock
Seems like it isn't aligned correctly. Mine did the same thing when my sub used to hit the trunk. I have to slightly push it to the left when I close the trunk. Just find the sweet spot on where/how it closes and then re-adjust the latch to correspond to it.
