trunk latch repair?
#1
Hi,
the play on the trunk latch seems to be a high angle on the shaft of key -

see 2 photos

is this play normal or do I have to repair the trunk latch (is there a spring broken ?)
before buying a new latch I would try to open the rivets...

thank you
Wolfgang

I think that play is normal. When you turn the key and pop the latch it goes over 90 deg. to the left like in these pictures. The picture with the latch released did not take so I do not have the other position. I think you are OK with what you have.
