more and more as time goes on.
I have lubricated the mechanism and the linkage, but this did not help.
Has anyone here experienced this before? What should I look at now
as the possible cause? Or does this require a technician?
As a master Subaru tech of 20 years, try to adjust the latch first!! It's not up high enough.. It's only 3 12 mm bolts and slide it up.. Is the car from the east coast??
Rust can cause this latch problem also.. Has the car been wrecked?
