broken trunk latch

Asked by Jul 26, 2011 at 11:48 AM about the 2004 Kia Spectra Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The trunk latch does not catch.  It can no longer be opened from the inside of the car as it seems that the latch remains open.  I do not see any spring at the top of the latch in the trunk - did it break off or does it need one? Does anyone have a trunk latch diagram or know how to fix this?  The trunk needs to be held closed by a bungee cord!  Please help!

........I looked at another car trunk latch in the driveway. I turns out the spring in the Spectra jumped off the hook ( I found it near the spare tire). Trunk closes perfectly now!
