I am not showing a trunk pull-down motor.What is the problem you are having?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The trunk will close but the little motor that pulls down the trunk lid is like really loose and won't pull the trunk lid down securely. I have to slam the trunk lid to have it catch. I used to be able to just have them touch and it would pull the lid down all the way.

Let me check further. Can you upload a picture of the area in the trunk?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

So what you're saying is I have to take the bumper off?
Expert:  Daniel Jones replied 10 months ago.
To replace the striker, but it doesn't show a Pull Down motor.
Expert:  Daniel Jones replied 10 months ago.
The problem could be with the latch not locking properly.
