Hello, welcome. My name is Mike, I will do my very best to
assist you with your question.

From what you are describing the latch assembly has failed and is causing the issue that you are having. The latch assembly is not repairable, meaning that no parts are sold for it. The latch assembly will need to be replaced and is sold by the dealer.
