Whether I use the inside release or the key to open the trunk of my sedan, I am forever frustrated with having to stick my fingers in the teeny weeny gap between the trunk and the bumper to open it up. There are scratches on the bumper as a result.

Is there some mod that I can do which can make the trunk pop open higher?

TIA.

Keep a midget back there to kick it open.

I'm actually not too happy with it either, but I lived to deal with it figuring there was no changing it. When others are opening my trunk they'll usually grab my spoiler, at which point I'll swat their hands away.

I think that problem is why Mazda added a little scoop in the middle of the bumper on '07 sedans, like the hatches have.

You can use a spring popper from a shaved handle door popper kit. Install it in the sill and it'll pop it open about 1" or so. AutoLoc comes to mind, probably on ebay too.

Thx Bean. I have an 05 sedan, so not sure if the TSB applies. Having said that, it never hurts to ask ;)
