So, last night I had to pick up Moe's for dinner. That is not an acceptable smell for the inside of any car, let alone a brand new one. The frunk came in very handy. Chips a little broken because the divider is in the way, but rather a broken chip than a smelly car.

I wholeheartedly agree regarding Moe’s takeout. I was wondering, is it possible to remove the dividers in the frunk to make it more usable, apart from Moe‘s takeout?

Does anyone else have trouble closing the frunk consistently? The double latch is a really poor design. I haven't figured out how to easily get it to close flush. More often than not it closes the first latch but doesn't close all the way. I then have to go inside and unlock it again to repeat the process.

It is. There are 8 pins holding it in place. One person in the forum said it took them about 20 min. I can't remember who though.

It does take a little extra force. You're supposed to be able to drop it from 12 in or so. Haven't really tried that yet.

Me too. A big bang initially seems to do it, but afraid it might break something
