Something must've gotten knocked off position because the trunk lid would
not latch closed. The mechanism latches closed properly when something
pushes it to the latch position and releases when the lock button is
pressed (while unlocked). The key & keyswitch properly locks/unlocks it
and other doors; the vacuum mechanism or whatever it is activated elsewhere
properly locks/unlocks as well. Anyway, all that stuff seems ok. Just
can't get the lock to catch the striker part on the bottom. Either can be
off position by now.
Is there a way to get them both into good alignment? Trial and error
doesn't seem to be zeroing in on it. I would think bringing the bottom
striker part higher would make it catch for sure and if it leaves the lid
too high then just adjusting it slightly lower but it's not working out.
Is there a trick?
