the latch mechanism needs to be removed, cleaned and greased. it gets amazingly dusty inside the rear hatch and that gums up the mechanism. had to do mine when I bought it.

got it. i pulled the plastic off and the lock was stuck. tossed some lube in there and used a screw driver to break it free and it works perfect. thanks. glad this was a free fix for a change.

i had a similar issue with mine, but found that I had to turn it to the left until it 'stopped' then turn a little harder to get it to lock.
