The trunk latch on my 1988 M3 broke and I'm having trouble figuring out which part to order. Does anyone know if the M3 latch mechanism is interchangeable with the other E-30 models?
The M3 latch is adjustable for height via a nut on the trunk-lid piece. On the other side of the nut is a circlip keeping the L-shaped latch from falling downward. My circlip broke and the trunk lid now sits too high. The BMW parts manual on CD shows a part that doesn't seem to be the correct one for the M3--non-adjustable. Was this a mis-print in the manual?
