Rear Hatch Alignment
« on: November 15, 2021, 12:21:13 PM »
Any recommendations on how to fix the hatch from hanging past the quarter panels on my 3rd generation Trans Am. I know itís because the hatch struts push it out over time but Iím not sure.

You need to unbolt the hatch and remove the old urethane.  Apply new urethane, then realign and retighten the hatch through the glass nuts at the deck lid.
