Re: Trunk not adjusted right :/

There are 2 things you need to do to adjust your trunk.

the latch on the car itself between the tail lights - use a 10mm socket and lower/raise the latch in whichever direction you need to adjust it.

then adjust the rubber grommets above the tail lights accordingly. slowly raise/lower them and keep checking the clearance of the trunk while closing it. With the trunk closed - you shouldn't be able to push on a corner and have play.
