1991 Chevrolet Camaro 232,852 mi,
trunk lid will not fully close due to the trunk pull down latch failing
total pain! First, my mechanic was able to make it close by physically opening the closed part. It workedfor awhile then it happened again. Again, it was physically opened and tested multiple times. I was sent on my way,very wary of using the trunk. Sure enough,it happened again. My mechanics couldn't find a new latch, as they are discontinues, as seems to be the case with every part I need :>( Eventually, I got a used assembly from a totaled vehicle. This whole ordeal was time consuming, anxiety producing, and expensive!
