Trunk Latch Adjustment

Post by jazzrider » Mon Feb 06, 2012 11:54 am

My trunk is hard to open it don't feel as the lever is fully pulling the release latch in. Is there an adjustment on the cable or mechanism that performs this function?

Just had mine apart and didn't notice an adjustment.

hELLO FROM FRANCE ... 52633.html

i think it's the bar who commande the trunk latch adjustment

my opinion it comes from the bar(helm) which commands the closure(lock) of the safe(chest). The fact of firing at the handle activates(sues) a small black handle on the bar(helm). If it is twisted it becomes difficult and clamps one from both directions. It is necessary to twist the bar(helm). Indeed, the bar(helm) activates(sues) the closure(lock) of the back suitcase. We had this problem. It is thus necessary to twist the bar(helm) so that the opening does well. Gently. I made a comment on my attached "blog". Good day

I, most times, have to gently apply downward pressure on the lid to dis-engage the latch.
