Jaguar XJS Trunk Latch

Asked by Oct 25, 2017 at 05:46 PM about the 1990 Jaguar XJ-S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I tried to lower the trunk lid on my Jaguar XJS (just on the latch side) to be even with the body by adjusting the "hook" (not the latch) and now the trunk will not close or lock.  How do I reset the hook and latch to get them to lock?

I think you need to reverse whatever you did. There probably are adjustable stops for the boot lid. Try them.
