Looks like a mechanism for a push button boot opener

Its not that side that opens the boot though.... All it does is move up and down?!?!?!? The other side is the actual boot machanism.......

????????

Pretty sure on mine it releases the boot. Just in case you are kidnapped and thrown in the trunk.

It aint though Chorme mate... I think it helps the boot spring open when the key or lever is pulled/turned.... There is nothing to press on it.... Strange thing... as the 200sx is exactly the same but without it?!?!?!?!?!


Excuse me paint job... Lol...
The green is the actual lever that opens the boot...

It lifts the striker out of the catch:)

Can't speak for the 33, but the 32 has a lever in the boot that you pull up and it disabled the rear lock so the boot can only be opened from the cabin. Maybe it's one of those?

Basically it makes sure the boot pops out of the latch even if your struts are knackered, that way you can at least pull it open.
