Trunk Latch Won't Engage/Lock


New Member
Really sorry if this is already out there but I really didn't find anything helpful.
I have a Honda Civic 2006 model. The trunk door closes properly, all the way to the end, but the latch mechanism doesn't catch on, and sometimes barely closes 1/3 of the way through. I looked at the cable and it works fine. I was able to close the latch using a screwdriver, and it fully engages, and I can also open it again by using my key, switch from the driver's seat, and the switch from inside the trunk.
I believe the issue to be the latch not being able to reach the hook to be fully engaged but it seems fine to me.
Really do hope someone can help me out.
