Trunk Hinge Removal

The last thing I did was to remove the trunk lid hinges from the trunk. The hinges were spring-loaded by two black wire springs that criss-cross the top of the trunk. Each spring hooks in to the opposing side of the trunk by the opposite hinge and spans the length of the trunk mouth and then feeds through the trunk hinge itself.

First I unbolted the metal hinge using a 7/16″ socket and a short extension. I disconnected the hinge springs from each and removed the metal hinges.

With the hinge-sides of each spring free I was able to unhook each hinge spring from the body where it was still connected on the opposite side of the trunk.
