Trunk Issues

I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what's wrong with my trunk. I've got an '06 Focus Sedan. When I use the clicker or the button inside to pop the trunk it makes an awful clicking noise when it latches open. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

the guy who owns the shop has a tricked out focus, very nice. So i take my car there when i want him to do something that i cant do. Since he has done it to his car i feel safe, plus he always gives me tips on new addons and stuff

Thanks, I think you mentioned that place before. It's worth a shot if I can't figure this crap out myself.

I dunno exactly, but it's some sorta air/fuel problem. My TB was sticky and I cleaned it out, but it's boggy at WOT. I don't think it's the fuel filter, cuz I did that with the pump last year. I dunno if it's sparkplugs or o2 sensor, or just needs a tune.. I suck at this stuff. LOL.

But I also need to find a good alignment shop cuz my camber and toe are wearing thru tires 4x too fast. So, there's both I guess. I needs some help haha.

i suck at this kind of stuff too, best way to learn is just to jump in. i've learned a car will only work one way.... kinda lol!

i just went to firestone for my alignment. i've got the lifetime on both cars and it's amazing. the guy stayed until 930 doing mine on friday, the night before my race! cool guys for sure.

Did you guys see the yellow SVT Euro on KSL for sale?

It's not mine, I don't know the seller, just figured I'd point it out.
