Ouch! Looks like the buzzing sound won't be coming from your trunk anymore. Sorry to see your car messed up like that, looks like a rollover?

Glad you got it fixed.

One trick you can do to see if the trunk is misaligned is to put the key in and while holding the key turned. Lower the trunk slowly and it should close all the way without any binding. If it off a little you will feel it. You can do this on your doors too. Just hold the door release out and close the door slowly. What you want is for the doors or trunk not to latch.

jcar,
I'm having a similar problem with my trunk latch. Makes the loud noise with the key fob and the release button inside the car. However, the latch doesn't stay closed, it actually does the opposite, and doesn't like to re-engage when I try to shut the trunk. I get the light inside too that says a door is open. I was just wondering if the trunk adjustment held and corrected your problems? If so, I'll get the trunk adjusted. Thanks.

Freddie - yes it held up. I sold the car this spring and picked up a Lincoln MKZ for my wife now that she is retired and not commuting a long way. But never had another problem with the trunk on the Focus.

Had this same problem. Turn the round bumpers on the corner of the lid a 1/2 turn or so CCW and fixed. What you're doing is essentially putting a little preload on the bumpers and striker. Hit the open button and the lid pops up.
