haha that's funny. I had the opposite with mine. Couldn't open it up after new shocks.


Call 20th street auto. 602-258-2020 I'm sure they'll give you a good deal.

Readjust the latches, that should help. Worked for me.
But keep an eye on the frame & glass at the top, they have been known to delaminate due to the new stress from new deck lid shocks.

Unfortunately there's a little delamination about 4 inches, so a little bit of fear trying to readjust the latches.

Latches aren't the reason for that, so you can clean, lube & adjust them.
As for the delaminating hatch, I had my vinyl guy make these up, using their best, outdoor vinyl (lasted for close to 6 years, before needing to be replaced) OVER lapped around the frame, then from inside, I filled the cavity between the hatch & frame with epoxy. A cheap, temporary fix, doesn't leak or let air in, and by wrapping around the frame, keeps the wind from making it worse.

I now do this to all my 944/924s, and my graphics guy an print on the vinyl, incase I want to put the track maps that I have driven or BVD Motorsports,

The easiest way to solve this problem is to get a good replacement rear window (used) that has not separated. Buy all new "factory" shocks, (not just the 3rd party after market ones) and go forward. I learned this lesson maybe 30 years ago with my 924 (s). Dont use anything except the factory shocks for your car!! Pelican has them!
