Dan, I have a 140 series 1995 S-350 and the trunk handle sometimes goes back out after the trunk is closed and it is sucked in. Just pops back out. The trunk does not open but the lights inside the trunk come on and the dash light lights up as to the trunk being open. I have adjusted the mechanism and it seemed to help a little. It might work properly for a week then all of a sudden pop back out. Very agrivating. I have tried oiling it with only marginal success. I even got into the trunk an had my daughter shut the lid where I could see what was going on. It appears there is a microswitch that a little rotating lever goes against. The lever is not rotating far enough when it malfunctions. Any ideas or does the whole thing need to be replaced?
