Please help .... the trunk latch is stuck closed so it will not "latch' on to the u shaped trunk closing mechanism.

Asked by Apr 01, 2014 at 11:09 AM about the 1995 Lincoln Town Car Signature

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

A friend pushed the latching mechanism closed on the trunk lid to tie the trunk down with a bungee cord but we didn't use it as afraid it would damage it.  Now I cannot get the mechanism to open so that the trunk will latch.  The electric motor is working fine.

Thank you,

you could try putting a screw drive through the latch and add some upward pressure as you or your friend hits the trunk release. this would simulate the upward motion of the trunk opening due to it being sprung.
