Default How can I fix my trunk latch?

I have a trunk latch that does not close and when forced open with a screwdriver, sticks when re-locked. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem, and if so, are there any quick fixes? A good place to order a new latch from? Any help is greatly appreciated..

appears to be a common problem.. as well as the shocks for the hatch door... I need new ones too...
Also, my car has the lock unlock mechanism... but the rear door doesn't work... If i open or close the hatch with my key... all doors lock and unlock, but if I do it any other way, alarm or the front doors... it won't do anything... anyone have a solution?

good luck on your fix.
