    Another new guy

    Hey all...just picked up a white 89 hatch last week, LXi, 5 speed with 138K for $1K. Bit of rust here and there, but not too bad.

    My first ever car (way back when) was an 89 hatch, dark red, exact same car!
    Driving around this past week brought back a lot of memories, and reminded me how big a mistake it was getting rid of that original 89. Its nice to be back.

    Quick question for you...anyone know how to adjust the latch for the hatchback? I gotta slam it pretty good to get it to lock.

    Thanks, and great site!

    Yeah, I ran a search and checked out the FAQ's, but no luck.

    With the hatch open, I can lock the latch with a screw driver and release it with the remote trunk release next to the drivers seat, don't know why the hatch itself won't lock it.

    if it's simmilar to the trunk lid, you just need to unbolt the 2 10mm bolts and raise the metal bar some.
