Trunk applique - I can't get it off.
I'm still trying to fix my trunk leaks. I can tell by the water spots on the inside of the
trunk lid that the applique is leaking. I'm trying to remove it and reseal it, but I can't get
it off. I have the six screws removed and any silicone around these screws is popped loose, but it won't come off.
It will move just a little bit, maybe a few millimeters.
Is there something I'm missing. I don't want to break it, but it is stuck good.
I'm not sure how the lock mechanism is attached, but I can't even get the sides to
come loose, so it'* not the key mechanism. It appears that the inner most two
screws hold the key mechansim to the applique, but not the applique to the trunk lid.
That would leave just four screws.????
Frustrated and need help.
