For a while now my trunk doesn't really pop, when I press the trunk release button it hardly goes up. Is there a reason for this? Its a stock trunk, not modified in any way. I have changed the trunk 2 years ago but I didn't change anything on the trunk spring so there shouldn't be an issue.

Anyone have the same issues?

Hahaha, like everybody said, it doesn't go all the way up. Sometimes, when I click the button, it doesn't even go up at all. It's pretty safe to say that it's normal for this kinda weird stuff to happen from time to time

I have an EX. Most of the time, you can't even see the trunk go up, you have to lift it from where it sits. Not real sure what causes it... my guess is bad quality weather strips. The strips on pretty much all my doors are loose to where you can see the circle grooves in the body where it's supposed to sit. Any recommended glue I can use for that? Sorry to get off topic, but I'd guess it's normal.
