RE: [DMCForum] Trunk latch captive nuts



Doesn't one of the vendors sell a riv-nut kit?  A local owner had this
problem and was able to replace a few this way.

Subject: [DMCForum] Trunk latch captive nuts

I did a search and could not find anything about this.

I was getting gas one day and noticed that one of the bolts that hold the 
trunk latch onto the fiberglass was hanging out. It soon became evedient 
that the captive nut was no longer "captive" so there was nothing for the 
bolt to screw into.

After about 2 hours of poking around and carfully trying to reach the area 
where the captive nut should be from inside I finally gave up.

I am guessing there is no easy way to fix this, would anyone know the best 
way get at this area? I stopped short of pulling the glove compartment but 
that would be my next step.
