1)With the trunk open mark the trunk lid at the
top of the stock brackets by either scratching the paint
or using a colored marker.
2)Lay towels along the side of your car, and with a
friend remove the trunk lid by unbolting the stock 4
bolts (Hondas 10mm other cars may be different). Do not
remove the stock brackets, only the trunk lid. Either
cut or disassemble the zipties for the cables on the
side of the hinge to fully remove the trunk.
3)With the lid off of the stock hinges, lay the new
hinge on the lid for marking. The new hinge should be
flat side down, with the circular part of the new hinge
facing you, not the lid. Line up the top of the lower
bracket to the marked line on the lid. Flatten the hinge
on the lid and mark the lid for drilling. Using the
screws that came with the brackets, attach hinge to the
trunk lid by hand, not a drill. Repeat this step with
the other side. Once both hinges are on, you are ready
to reattach the trunk lid.
4)With help, lift the trunk lid to stock brackets.
With the lid flipped down like it will be when you’re
finished, line up the new hinge on the stock hinge for
marking. Mark the holes on the stock hinges to pre-drill
your new holes. Put lid back on the floor, and drill out
the holes. When the new holes are drilled, attach new
hinges to the stock ones using the screws. As said
before, screw in the screws by hand, not a drill. Once
all screws are in place, the trunk lid should be in the
flipped down position. The lid should rest on the car in
a flattened position. If it is flipped down too much,
you may need to bend the upper hinge down to allow the
lid to rest against the car.
5)Lift lid to the stock normal position and reattach
stock bolts to hold lid up. Connect the first latch
about 2 inches from the bottom of the trunk lid. Repeat
for the other side. Be sure they are mounted on the
inside of the stock brackets, and are flat and not
angled up or down.
6)Mark a spot on the stock brackets to drill to allow
the latch to lock. Be sure the latch will lock tightly
and there is no play. Repeat on the other side.
7)If it doesn’t latch tightly you may have to take in
and out the stock bottom bolts each time you want to
fold down your trunk lid. (This may work better if your
not going to fold it down all the time).
