The hatch release on my '03 C coupe is getting more and more difficult to release.

When it was new, an easy pull toward me easily popped the hatch, now I have to really squeeze/pull to get it to release.

Has anyone else had this experience? How did the service department reslove it? A simple, quick adjustment? New part?

Any info will be very helpful. Thanks.

I havn't had any problem with my hatch, but it sounds like a lubrication problem to me. I'd have the dealer take care of it.

The Northern NJ section is having a poker rallye on Sun April 17th and a C-class rallye on Sat May 14.

Hope you can attend either or both.
