When I first put it back in the rod was touching the trunk trim you mentioned. Then I moved it a little closer to the hinge pivot point and it just cleared the the trim piece. It has to be centered between the pivot point and the trunk trim piece. As you know this is a tight area and not much room for any slop.

The good news is if you over bend it a little it is very easy to move it back closer to the hinge by just prying it with a screwdriver. If you look at it you will see it almost has a built in pry point to bend it toward the hinge but not to bend it away.

I really like the B3 position better even though it opened slowly on the a2.
