    You have to manually lift it. By the way, itís heavy, you might need some help.

    Cadillac XLR

    2006 Base Infrared

    If you got a dead battery, it certainly won't lift the trunk lid. It's best to have a second set of hands unless you're a contortionist. The rear deck is heavy, and to avoid any damage to the hinges, cylinders, pull of on the deck from the center mounted Cadillac badge while turning the key in the lock cylinder
