    boot wont open

    i replaced my boot latch thing on the boot lid as it wasnt keeping the boot shut so i unscrewed the 3 screws and disconected the rod from the back of the lock in the lid and now when you press the boot lick in to open the lid it doesnt seem to push the rod far enough to release it from the latch so the boot can be opened. help.

    either buy a new setup or put 2 zip ties around the rod next to eachother, obviously cutting off the excess you dont need as all you do need is just the 'nobbles' of the zip tie to give it some length to pop the lock how it should.
