Rear liftglass not latch-ing
 
My warranty just ran out 200 miles ago @ 70k. Conveniently I open the rear lift glass and then attempt to close it, and what do you know, the latch is not clicking into place. It appears that whatever makes the hinge click closed is broken. Has anyone had any experience with this issue at all and have any advice? Cost of part etc? What is involved with replacing? Thanks in advance. :(

Happy to say that silicone lubricant fixed the latch issue. Should have tried it before posting but, for anyone that may have a similar issue try the lube first. The latch mechanism is 180 bucks at the dealer if you end up having to replace it.

Dont slam it down like most people. Push it down till its on the latch and then give it a good push and it will catch every time.
