Dumb mistake! But found part!
Posted by: Skizz ()

I was removing the trunk lock on my 66 and the L shaped piece that releases the lock fell into the bottom of the mechanism.
Anyone have one they would part with?
Thanks,

Can't you fish it out with a small magnet? Might have to take latch off the brace.

So at least you will get it back next time it rolls over. How long since the last roll over? Has to be a schedule for them. EMs are the ones that do it all the time.
