Trunk release lever VERY hard to pull

Recommended Posts

Is it hard to pull and then opens, or hard to pull and won't open? The difference is the latter one, sounds like you need to reset the locking mechanism.

Close all doors, and use the remote to lock and unlock a couple of times, then open the door and pull the hatch, should be back to normal.

By your description I take it that it's a 99 with the mechanical release? If so, you need to take out the latch mechanism and lube it. there should be a DIY on this subject. If you need a new latch, I have one that I bought sometime back for my 99 996 that caught fire and burned. I've got a number of parts for that car...latch, new cable, EVOM Cool Air Intake....complete brand new 30K mile parts necessary for that maintenance., complete set of wheels and Michelin PS2 tires etc....

Do a search first for the DIY on the latch....then if that doesn't work, PM me and I'll discuss selling you the part at a savings if you need it.....I now have a 996TT...and don't need the parts.
