Re: My Fix It Before It Breaks Install
Yep, the failure can be prevented by taking some metal off the 2 cams that engage the trunk lid pins, but then you wont have a dust-tight seal any more. I alway grease that part to reduce the friction and press down on the lid when opening and closing, but I'm presently waiting for my "fix it before it breaks" kit to arrive beacause i know the failure will occur eventually. Spend the money, fix the problem, forget about it.
