I’ve had my 2000 LT Trike for about two weeks and have gotten some good info here. Thanks
The lock on my trunk functions as it should but it appears the two ‘dogs’ are intended to wrap around two plastic pins inside the latch. My problem, if there are to be pins, they are missing (broken off). It looks to be repairable by drilling two holes and using some type of fastener to take the place of the pins. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

They are not plastic pins they are metal. "E" clip on one end. Dealer (BMW) does not list them as an available part so you will have to improvise.

John. I got those E clips at a hardware supply. You have to size them to the pin. Now the pin i know BMW didn't carry. If he doesn't have the pin. I can look to see if i have one.
