Manual Trunk Release

Recommended Posts

I seem to recall reading somewhere that '84-'91 Avantis had an emergency manual trunk latch release cable located somewhere under the rear bumper to be used in the event that the electric operator failed.  I looked under the bumper of my '89 but I didn't see anything that looked like a release cable.  Does anyone know if my '89 should have been equipped with an emergency release?

Thanks,

Bill

I didn't have a release cable on my -87. Fixed an own solution with cable.

My '88 has this located on the left rear side - way underneath - it is a very thin bare stranded wire.  Check again.  EDIT:  OK, I'm back - I checked from the inside of my trunk cause my carpeting is removed due to wetness after every rain.  So, the wire I'm talking about goes from the latch area to a hole where the wires go for the back-up lights and license plate lights.
