Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less.the trunk latch is very prone to failure. Mercedes decided to make all the internals plastic and it had been very problematic since the production of that style ML. There will be nothing you can do to get it to latch. You will need to have it replaced. If you are handy and good with cars it is really easy to replace all you have to do is remove the trim panel at the rear door and the latch simply unbolts with the 3 torx screws. But there is nothing you can do to get it to shut as the internals have broken and will not catch and it is a sealed unit so there is no way to access any levers and such. Sorry it's not better news. Hope this information helps , if there is anymore info I can provide please let me know. I am here to help!! Lou.
