Thanks, ***** ***** trunk is able to close fully just not latch, that rules out the latch jaws being accidentally closed not able to accept the striker. It can mean the striker has come loose and is now to far from the latch unable for the latch draws to grab. If that to is fine then its the latch that has failed.

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

If your confused on why or how to rate me, let me know.
