Default Stupid glow in the dark trunk release fell off :(

I have a 2005 Ford Mustang V6 and while going to put a sun shield in the trunk of my car, I noticed that my glow in the dark emergency trunk release was sitting on the floor. I fiddled for 20 minutes trying to put the damned thing back in, but can't get it.

Has this happened to anyone and does anyone know how to put it back in?

Happens to me all the time. It's pretty easy to put back, It has a hammer end stopper, just slip it in side ways then turn it and it will lock in place.

I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about, because from the way I see it is there is no way to push it in sideways, it only goes in straight, where it seems to not fit properly and if I keep forcing it in, it bumps into where it's locked.

Can someone provide me with some pictures for a break this little plastic doohickey?

It happened to me the other day. I think with your finger you can push the little tabs inward (In the direction they move, not in reverse or you'll snap them.) Then move your finger out of the way and put the T stop in. It was my first time and it took me like 2 seconds to fix, so I'm not really sure what kind of problems you are running into... Unless of course when it fell off, it fell off because it snapped somewhere and that is why you can't get it back on?

honestly i dont think its important. I TOOK mine off, i dont plan on being thrown in my trunk, and you can still grab the wire.... im more worried about me throwing someone in there!! why would i want them to be able to get out? and you can get into the car from the trunk by pushing the seats down,......i think its hideous when you open the trunk witht that stupid green handle hanging there....

just my $0.02

I've never really taken notice of it until I found it sitting inside of my trunk when it fell off... Though, the fact I rarely use my trunk is another thing. lol.
