Russ drove up from L.A., and we spent the evening looking at the boot lock on his car... I don't know, you drive a Mercedes, you expect it to work. Anyway - you click the boot shut and it's supposed to close it the rest of the way, but hasn't been. He's got the instructions on how to fix it, he's just been too much of a pussy to take stuff apart. I have tools, too, so we took the leaking (it's pneumatic) pump out, tracked down the leak with soapy water (there were what looked like cracks in it), then epoxied the crap out of it. Sorted.
