Yup, there are 3 holes for each side (spring) behind the trunk lining. Mine didn't swing open, so I moved the springs to the one next to it (last adjustment hole, of 3).
If you pull back the trunk lining and find the holes, you'll figure it out.
But let me warn you.... these Springs have a lot of tension... it was a pain in the @ss 'de-compressing' them get the hook into the final hole.
