trunk pulldown


Recommended Posts

I fixed my trunk pull down the other day on my 96 deville. I had checked voltage from top switch 12 volts and ground seemed ok. I went to bottom motor. Unbolted it, bolts go into plastic case. I unscrewed motor cover, and found motor somewhat frozen. Pulled it out , lubricated . Pulled armature out and lubricated with grease at bottom of steel case. Re-insatalled armature and ,had to take care putting brushes back in .You need to push them in ,and hold with your finger and use a small screwdriver. Do this very easy. Put back together, but did not seem to work. so I found a little screw on the same assembly holding switch case on . And I removed and cleaned switch connections, lots of bluish gunk on them and I sprayed connections and inside of box with wd40. Reassembled, and that did it. When you toggle the little lever on the top of trunk lid :D ,it should activate the motor on the lower catch. Works great.
