Just purchased a certified preowned C300. Trunk won't close.

Customer Question

Hi. Just purchased a certified preowned C300. Trunk won't close. It did last night on the way home but when I opened it to put things in, it stuck open. Please help!
JA: What exactly is happening to the trunk?
Customer: I try to close it and it won't stay down. I've check to make sure nothing is blocking latch. It appears that the squeeze mechanism on the back to lease is stuck.
JA: What year is your C300?
Customer: 2013
JA: Are you fixing your C300 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: A little WD40 thinking latch may be a bit sticky, running a butter knife between squeeze mechanism and it won't budge.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No thanks
