    After taking boot cover out on the driver side of trunk, the motor for the cover is between the outer panel (inside of trunk) and the frame it is bolted to. You can not see the motor behind the frame. you can tell if it is disconnected or not by the tension on the two cables that work the latch for the cover. Watch the video below to see what I mean. I had to take a screw driver and PUSH HARD on the motor thru a slot in the frame. It actually made a POP noise when the motor came lose. The reason the motor will not just pop lose is because the cover latch cables are still pulled tight to hold the cover down. Once you figure that out, the rest is very easy to do. Good luck. I also have a fix for fixing the cable for the latches when they break. They are an easy fix too. $62.00 dollars for the short cable. I fixed mine for $22.00 for the parts and tool. Good Luck! new2bmir.
