OK so i have a 12" in a 3 ft. ported box and my trunk shakes like micheal J Fox on a dryer. so i was wondering if since i have a trunk release button in the console. could i shave the lock and remove the mechanical stuff on the lid and would it still open?

would a shaved trunk/solenoid kit get rid on the trunk lid lock rattle?

no. the rattle comes from the trunk flexing and hitting the rear quarter panles. If you wanted to seal it, you would need to weld the trunk closed. Or use dynamat (the second would probably be better).

Self-adhesive rubber gasket tubing (sold at AutoZone and the like) might cure some of that.
