Default 05 Rear Deck won't lock

Our 05 A8 has developed a problem: the rear decklid will not lock itself down; it will close, make the " winding" noise for lacl of a better term, quits and is not locked. Noticed that the front right edge of decklid raises up while deck is trying to lock. Car has not been hit. Any ideas as to fix ???

Have a look at this thread 2004 A8 hood stays open... latch broken? - AudiWorld Forums

It's not uncommon for D3 trunk locks to not work in cold weather.
You can fiddle with it and oil it, but most people end up replacing it to resolve the problem.

If the decklid is out of alignment it could be bent arms, or the latch is in the wrong position forcing it up.

If your hinges are worn or bent they run 159.96 each, L and R in stock at this time. The latch is 4F5-827-505-D and runs 50.00, we have 4 in stock. They are popular. Plus shipping, thanks. Jeff.
