2007 C280 Avantgarde owner


I bought a previously-enjoyed 2007 c280 Avantgarde last year and have dealt with a host of issues.

One persistent issue relates to trouble closing my trunk. There are times when several attempts are required to lock the trunk. In the instances where it doesn't close, it seems to 'bounce' open.

I have no issues opening my trunk with my remote.

I have used WD40 and adjusted the circular bumpers and while that seems to work for a period of time, the closing problem pops up again.

My concern is not only for the frustration I experience when the problem arises, but also for the trunk which seems to have sustained some 'chipping' on the edge that strikes down on the bumper.

Any help would be appreciated.
