No
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The trunk mechanism pulls it down two seconds later it opens closes opens again and then stays open. I've purchased a used part to see if it would be any better and it does the same thing.
Lexus Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

When closed sits a little below fender
Lexus Mechanic: Roy, import/domestic specialest replied 2 years ago

yes, either the mounting area for the laych is slotted or thepiece on the trunk is slotted to adjust how tight it closes
