honduh Posted September 3, 2015 Share Posted September 3, 2015 (edited) I bought a Legacy GT and one of the problems with the car is the trunk would only open if you are pulling up on it while hitting the remote. If you don't pull up on it, it unlocks and immediately locks. I did some research and determined that a previous owner must have installed the OEM spoiler and didn't upgrade the torsion rods. I ordered the stronger torsion rods for use with OEM spoiler and it really didn't make much of a difference. EDIT 11/18 - I fixed the stupid trunk! I finally figured out how to fix this stupid trunk! The secret is in the latch. You have to remove the plastic covering and then unscrew the two 10mm bolts, then push the bracket as far down as it will go, then tighten and reassemble. It is as easy as that! You can see in my picture the faint outline of where the bolt originally was, it was just a cm or 2 too high. Now my trunk works like a charm, from both the remote and the lever. Edited November 18, 2015 by honduh Fixed! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
