Larry Posted April 16, 2008 Report Share Posted April 16, 2008 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 ,it should activate the motor on the lower catch. Works great. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
