Welcome to Just Answer,

The tailgate opening on the Meriva is not a traditional mechanical catch it is an electric switch that releases a motor on the catch.

These switches wear out in time and I think yours will need to be replaced, you need to remove the outer handle to get access to it, there is a picture of the switch attached.

I hope this helps, best regards,Customer
