The power assisted trunk latch on my 1992 Park Avenue has crapped out.
The trunk will latch but not close completely. Does anybody know how
to bypass the latch to avoid replacing the power assisted mechanism?
I know the dealer would want bitg bucks to replace it. Thanks!
On a friends 1991 Lincoln Continental the latch was able to be removed
and mounted lower, so the lid would close all the way.

Is it possible the problem is just a blown fuse? That happened to me with a
79 Eldo I used to have, but it failed completely pulled down and the trunk
closed. I just replaced the fuse and all was ok.
that and Junkyards are your friend for that kind of thing, why pay a
dealer a couple hundred bucks for a part that will work just as well
used? for 75?
