Help with boot

Recommended Posts

Wondering anyone have any tips to why my boot wont close its not the latch or receiver. I got new ones and connect but when i screw the latch receiver down and close the boot it just wont close, but i do notice the latch receiver wont stay in place it falls down. Also when i close the boot feel like it shifts from left to right which makes me think its the boot supports but the seem fine. And ideas would be great. Thank you. Its the only thing thats wrong with my mb6

Possible like an alignment issue of some sort. 

With the lid down does it all line up? With rear quarters lights etc? Equal gap at the sides?

Ill check but it does look pretty evan. Wen i do close the boot it does shift to the right. Hopefully ill get it fixed 

Certainly sounds like somethings not lined up right. 

Or has it had a little bump in the rear that moved the latch?

Is the latch receiver bolted tightly to the tailgate/hatch lid? When you close it, does it make a loud metallic thump sound like metal hitting metal? If so it could be the receiver is stuck in the closed position. Try the key in the lock, and see if the latch moves.
