Quick (and Temporary) Trunk Release Fix


So apparently some of these cars are affected by a slack or stretched trunk release wire. I could hear my strike plate hitting the cancel switch but not hard enough for the trunk "bump up" spring to crack open the trunk. Well, I know folks have managed to put a spacer on the wire (a zip tie) to account for the stretch but that didn't work for me. Temporarily, I've taped a washer to the strike plate, effectively pushing it out a few mm. I'll take the assembly apart later and simply bend the bracket....
