1989 944 S2 Rear hatch re-latching


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944/968): 944S2; Year: 1989; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 106000;

I'm experiencing the opposite problem of most 944 owners... my hatch unlatches fine, but doesn't re-latch properly. The rotating dual arm located just inside of the hatch keyhole that the operating rods for the latches attach to sticks in the "latch open" position. I've done a touch inspection of the latch operating rods and can't feel any binding. If I give the arm assembly a little manual help, it pops back into the "latch closed" position. Do you have any advice on areas or assemblies I should check?
