95 wagon trunk Door

My 2001 95 wagon lid has become cranky. Itís heavy to lift and wonít reliably stay open. Kinda dangerous to load stuff in there. Perhaps a spring broke, or a cable snapped. Anyone have experience with this?

The latch handle on the trunk itself? The linkage between the handle and the latch could be disconnected. Or if its not unlocking the latch, the linkage between the lock actuator could be disconnected or the actuator itself could be bad and not operating when you unlock. What do you hear when you hit the unlock button?

Does the light in the cargo area come on when you open the lid? Does the diagram on the instrument cluster show that the tailgate is open when it is?

It could be the microswitch inside the latch that tells the car when the tailgate is open.


It could also be the lock actuator.
