Hello everyone, I'm having an issue shutting my deck lid. I've adjusted things and still extremely hard to shut. The part connected to the hinges. Rises up and if I force it shut the part that latches is rising up. How many washers do you guys have on each bolt? I have two thick ones and one thinner one. Thanks.

Did you just finish doing something mx wise before this problem occurred? Have you just reinstalled your deck lid? could you take a video of said problem and show a close up of your hinge area? I have fat washers on my hinges also, not sure how many and I'm 6k miles away from it :( so I can't look this minute.

Hi,
I had a similar problem on my Elise S2 2001 mod. Lubricating the hinges solved the problem, they can "squeck?" badly if they get dry, and maybe a bit rusty inside. I used white lithium grease, and mechanically worked it into the hinges by opening and shutting the lid repetedly.

Cheers Tore
