Re: 2G hatch fix for weak latch pop ups.

Stumbled across this tonight ... awesome mod. I always just thought it was a 97-99 "turbo" car problem b/c of the added weight of a heavier spoiler ... but from the sounds of it everyone has this problem.

Re: 2G hatch fix for weak latch pop ups.

Usually it annoys me when people bump threads, but thanks techboy. My 2G has this problem and now I know how to fix it. Woo!

No problem! I was pretty excited myself. I don't think my hatch has popped since a/b the year 2000 when the car was a year old! It's always annoyed me most at car shows when you want to get out your chairs.

Re: 2G hatch fix for weak latch pop ups.

I did this mod over the summer after finding it last winter and it's already not popping again .... and it's only October. Ugh. I guess the spring just stretches. It was nice while it lasted!
