RE: REPOST: 88 5ksq trunk latch spring -- Thanks to all
Thanks to you and everyone else that replied! If I understand correctly, it
appears that there is a loop and a hook on the spring. Loop goes around a
grooved post and the hook goes through the locking lever. Didn't seem like
enough distance, but perhaps it is different when system is engaged.

Subject: RE: REPOST: 88 5ksq trunk latch spring -- Does *anyone* know?
A fellow lister in distress! I had a look on my 87 5kq and I can't
see where the end of the spring goes inside the latch. The end of the
spring I can see seems to go on a post, or perhaps through a hole in a
post as the anchor point. The other end must go onto the latch, the
hook shaped lever so it will lever open and shut. Is there a hole in
the latch part? What do you think? I can't really help out further
without taking the thing apart. Hope this helps.
Follow up. I had one of these in my trusty parts box. Off an 87 5k.
Part # 443 827 505 D. There is a plastic cover on it as well # 443
827 563 A. There are only two places that you can attach the spring.
One is the actuator lever, and the other the latch. I would just
stretch out the spring a little curve it around, and you have contact
brother! The old spring on mine shows no signs of corrosion. The
rest...well...maybe a little bit:)
