Here is a mod I did to increase the POPUP of the trunk lid. I added a custom Design Specialties trunk insert (see below) and was concerned about the trunk lid not popping up with the added weight. My trunk has always worked fine but the extra weight had me worried.



Here is a link to what I did... http://home.att.net/~jansseng/Popup.htm

Just installed and works pretty good but I don't have a long term report.

Nice, I WISH mine popped up that far....

I can't even get a fingernail under mine...My fix was to pop the trunk when exiting the car and close the door, thereby forcing the air to work for me...

Thus far, I have not found a solution to popping it when I walk up TO the car..

This started after they replaced my trunk shocks... /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_mad.gif

And, I have a horrible popping in my door....ugh...

Hi all,
Your lid should pop up at least 1 and a half, if not, have it checked, as there may not be enough lubricant in the latch.
Best, c4c5

The trunk insert is probaly only 2 pounds, but it is positioned out from the hinges and making the shock/prop less effective.

George.... You have way too much time on your hands. I like it. I'll see it at Chucaburger on the 29th.

Jerry, I'll be there and maybe Sherylann too. Are we getting close to an Oil Change party??
