Trunk

My trunk is really hard to open up, is that normal? I've sprayed lube on the hydraulic arms and nothing

If I open it slowly for the first 90% it will go up easy, if I try to rush it open it's really hard and the last 10% is pretty hard no matter what speed

Re: Trunk

seems as they get older the shocks in the back are hard to pull open, try replacing those.. for a quick test you can undo them and see if the lid opens/closes smoothly without the shocks being part of the equation.
