Best Answer

is it the electric pul down that isn't operating.

If it is and you cant get a new one, remove it from the car, remove electric motor( the gear on the trunk hold down tends to break, it is plastic).

Disassemble from the top metal plate(2 screws) raise it up and inspect the gear, if missing teeth just hold the gear and rotate the trunk hold down it will lower. Re install in car.

You may have to adjust the heigh to get the trunk to shut correctly just raise or lower the hold down(you can do this while it is in the car)
