    I just noticed this the other morning when I got up to go to work. On my 8Z, the trunk light stays on even with the trunk closed. I read in one of the posts that this is a mercury activated switch. Is there a way to fix these or soeme other way I can clean/fix the switch up so it will work?

    Sounds like it has gotten bent. Just bend the bracket till the light is off
    ,with the trunk fully closed.. Or, maybe someone has remounted it incorrectly.
