Whaletail Lid Release problem


My rear lid doesn't "pop" openlike it used to when I pull release lever in door jamb. I have to ask for assistance  to lift the lid while I tug on lever. Seems like lever tension opens the release ok.The lid shocks are fairly ok. Holds up hood most of the time.

Is there a spring that has to be replaced to fix this issue? If I need to access engine when Im alone, I'd have a problem.



leak through sunroof

I have a water leak above the right rear window that drips through the headliner.  Is this most likely related to the sunroof or an old rubber window seal?

Replacing drivers side rearview mirror

Model: Carrera, Year:1986, Mileage:125000, Type of use:Street use only
Some wiseguy ripped off my drivers side mirror at the juncture with the base, so base to door is OK. I can pull it out so it just hangs by the electrical wire.Is this a difficult job? I went to Pelican Parts and they gave me an exploded picture of all the parts involved. Any idea of cost to have this fixed should I go to my shop? Did check Body and Interior, didn't see similar question. Rick Wahlberg

The "Carrera" label that is on the engine hood fell off. It appears to be black plastic. Can you suggest what type of adhesive I should use to re-attach it back to the hood? Should I clean the area on the painted hood with anything special prior to gluing it back? Thank you
