My wifes trunk lid pull down motor stopped working again. This time it was in the up position leaving the trunk open about one inch. I wasn't able to get the switches to respond so I decided to crank the pull down manually. Well, it seems there is a much easier way. DO NOT remove the motor from the housing. There is a silver plate at the base of the pulldown. It is held in place by two screws. Remove the one screw that holds the black switch actuator assembly. Remove that assembly. Remove the screws for the silver plate and lift it off. Take the pull down out enough to unscrew it. Turn it left or right until it reaches whatever height is necessary to align the trunk lid properly. Reinstall the plate and you're done. I may pick up another assembly from the salvage yard later but for now the trunk closes with no leaks so my work is done here.
