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.

Its in this thread at least 2 times. But hey I'm sure your time is more important than mine, so I went back and read the entire thread to get the link here it is again.

and if you view it in chrome, in the upper right corner on your window is a translate option in case you don't read German

As long as we speak german on a website, and I can use Chrome, yeah. Funny think I flunked out of 2nd year German in H.S.


Gee, I think I even explained how to get it in English, and I know there is a more detailed explanation on this thread. Dam I am starting to sound like a bitter old man.

LOL Davhamm. I had 2 years in HS and another year in college...then found out I had to have a second year in college when i went back a few years ago and ASU didn't offer German online...So I took Spanish and every time I tried to translate something in my head it went from English, to German, to Spanish...IF I got it...if I didn't it came out half in German and half in Spanish. Uhg.

No you did fine with the link. I think he got it.

Tippy, let us know how it goes.

Ok guys, got in touch with Werner yesterday. Ordered the trunk opener and got a message from him this morning that it's out of stock. It will ship early next week. Really looking forward to the install. I'm tired of my too long fingernails that are need to grap the trunk to get it open. Lol

Installing Gas Shock for Trunk Lid

Has anyone had a problem with the lid moving out of place when installing this according to instructions? I plan on marking its location with tape just in case, but just wondered if just snugging up the bottom bolt after installing the bracket is sufficient to hold the lid while taking out the top bolt to swing the bracket into position. Thanks, TerryJ
