I bought the used car and it is missing the items to hold the trunk open. I am using a broom handle right now. Is there anyplace that I can find the replacement part?

    I believe that these were held open by the pneumatic struts on the trunk. These are often dealer-only replacement parts, but replacing them should fix the problem and hold the trunk open. It's not uncommon for them to wear out.
