Thanks for the scoop on the trunk. It was actually kind of difficult to reconnect those vacuum pump wires since they are so short to begin with.

The only other thing that was a problem in the vaccuum system was the fuel filler door lock, which takes an unusually long time to open and close, and I can hear it hiss for a a while after locking or unlocking the doors. I have not listened to it since this trunk incident, however, but I assume it is still doing that.

I am certain that my driver-side lock is good -- just dirty from all the graphite probably jammed in there.

If I could get it out of the door I could blast it clean with a Water Pik (as I did for the passenger lock) but I can't remove it until I can get it to turn -- or is there another way?
