Exclamation CSL Trunk lid not opening or closing

Hey everybody! This question has been linger across my mind I cannot find the right solution towards so any advice will be helpful.

Awhile back and until now every now and then my OEM CSL boot lid won't properly close or open at times especially when it's cold out. At times to get it to close when I open it I have to lock it while it's hovering up in the air to properly shut and lock. On the other hand, getting it to open sometimes is a hit or miss, if I try to open it by using the key somehow it would open/lock at the same time forcing me to just open it manually with the key.

It's been a pain in the ass my assumption could be? either new trunk shocks or a wiring electrical issue. However I did adjust those rubber mounts, but I did not want to keep messing with it until I got enough answers what to do. Also, I been considering uploading it to YouTube lately for anyone that may not get what I mean.

-Cheers!

Bootlid and locking mechanism/latch need to be adjusted.

It just needed an adjustment, but if you are not hearing the locking/latch mechanism, then that part might be the issue.

Sounds like an alignment issue

True I think I'm just going to replace the latch mechanism and go from there.

The locking mechanism plus those little rubber bump stops on the bottom of the trunk need to be adjusted
