Is it just me, or does this make no sense to others here?
For the last couple of months when following SWMBO's car at night I
noticed that one end of the illuminated red panel across the trunk lid
of her car didn't seem lit as brightly as the rest of that strip.
I figgered (correctly) that a bulb had failed and finally set out to
change it today.
I had to unfasten a stiff-carpet like liner from the inside of the car's
trunk lid to gain access to seven nuts which secured the light assembly
to the trunk lid so that I could remove it and reach the bulb sockets on
The job went OK and I was pleased to find that my "hell box" of auto
bulbs and fuses held the exact bulb I needed to finish the job without
having to make a trip to a parts store.
Now to my point...
UNDER the carpet like trunk lid liner I noticed the emergency trunk
release handle which could let someone trapped in the trunk escape.
But, how the hell would somebody who didn't know that emergency handle
was hidden by the trunk lid liner possibly think to try and reach it by
ripping the liner off? (There is no opening in the liner to reach that
FWIW SWMBO's jalopy is a 2003 Buick Century which she's still driving
because it had less than 90,000 miles on it.
