The trunk opens when I use the lever near driver’s door, by key on the trunk and by the emergency latch lever inside the trunk (as they are supposed to). However, when I pull the lever inside the car near the driver’s side door, the trunk won’t close till I manually move a piece of metal inside the latch. This won’t happen if I am opening the trunk using the key.
What am I looking at here?
Frayed cable or a missing spring or corrosion in the cable? Or, something else?
Vehicle is a 2005 Toyota Corolla S.
