1999 SL500 - When I remotely release the trunk, it pops up fine but it seems heavy at first until it reachs about 18 inches open. Is there a way to adjust the springs so that it will not feel as heavy?

Trunk not opening with remote

I had a similar problem. The remote opened the trunk sporatically. It always caused a clicking sound but it didnt always open. I sprayed WD 40 on the latch side and around the sides of the plunger. It works fine now.

The deck lid {trunk} should feel heavy, It is built this way so that you don't have to SLAM it down to close it. This way there won't be any small dents from the palms of your hands!!!
