Hi there.

I have a SE 2005, and this is maybe a really dumb question, but as I got a trunk lid carpet in a junkyard. I was wondering if any of you guys has a SRT-4 that had that carpet included as original equipment and how your emergency/anti-kidnapping handle/steel cable looks like.

I think I need (based on the pictures I saw when I googled this) to make a little hole in the carpet in order to "convert" the carpet in a SRT-4 one, but I don't know exactly where and I would not want to ruin it.

Any of you guys can post a pic of your trunk lid to see this in detail?

Thanks a lot!!

DaimlerChrysler eliminated the Neon deck lid carpet after the 2002 model year- this includes the 2003-2005 model year SRT-4's. Unfortunately, no pics here as the new carpet that I bought from a dealership already had a slit for the emergency release handle.

The used one I got also had a slit.

the slit is there so you have a way to reach in and grab the emergency handle...most of the trunk lid carpets should have this. As for the emergency handle it self, idk if all trunk lids came with this or not

As there is not any slits in the entire carpet, I had to improvise one in the same location of the lock where the steel cable passes.

Here are the results:

Hopefully the cable end for the handle is correct like this (kind of tricky to get it out of the handle though):

Thank you guys for your help! My trunk lid looks WAY better now! Rock ON
