Jetta 2002 Trunk latch issue


For a while the trunk would not open with the remote or the button on the driver door. It was not an issue since the key still worked.
Unfortunately, yesterday, it does not lock or latch.

With trunk open, I can easily move the latch to the close and open position. Since it does not lock, cannot set the alarm. If I pushed on it the alarm will set, but then, any cars going by will active the alarm.

But the worst thing is not being able to lock the trunk at all.

Any ideas?

Edited: Sorry wrong forum, moving to the correct one...
