Trunk latch

(2003 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG)
in Ballwin, MO on January 11, 2011
is it normal for the trunk latch to never lock? it closes but you can manually open it with your hand and it has a tendency not to stay open. you have to be very fast or you can get brained.

I have the same problem. Merc dealer told me they fixed it and then it came back again. They claimed it was hydraulic system leak. Wish I knew the answer.

When you lock the doors - either manually with the key or by the fob - the trunk should be locked too. With the door locks in the open position the trunk will be open also.
