Default TRUNK NOISE

SO MY TRUNK HAS BEEN MAKING A LOUD THUMP NOISE WHEN I GO OVER BUMPS. THIS REALLY WAS ANNOYING. SO I LOOK BACK THERE AND ON THE BOTTOM LATCH ( WHERE THE LOCK CLASPS THE BAR) THERE ARE TWO RUBBER PADS. THESE PADS KEPT MY TRUNK FROM CLOSING ALL THE WAY, SO EVEN THOUGH MY TRUNK LOOKED CLOSED AND FELT CLOSED, WHEN I WENT OVER BUMPS IT WOULD RATTLE. SO I REMOVED THEM AND NOW MY TRUNK CLOSES ALL THE WAY LIKE IT SHOULD. ANYONE HAVE THIS PROBLEM??? IS THERE ANOTHER WAY TO FIX IT?


P.S. sorry about the CAPS. i didnt realize i should type CAPS until i got near the end and i didnt want to re-type

I would think if the trunk wasn't closing properly, your interior light would be going on.
