Huh, I hadn't heard of that as being an issue before. I wonder if one (or both) of the tensioners popped loose, or if they rusted and broke? If they just came out of position, that shouldn't be tough. If they broke, I'm assuming it's the mount(s) that broke, not the rods themselves.
I recommend getting an owner's manual to see how to remove the trunk -- it's not tough, but it is a bit tricky.
