Rear hood release won't re-lock


Vehicle Information: Year: 2004; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.7 ; Total Mileage: 12,400; Transmission: Manual;

The rear hood release opened normally until a few days ago but will no longer lock. The mechanism does not appear to have failed, at least it is not bent or a piece missing. When the release is activated by the interior switch or key fob, I can hear it make the 'unlock' noise as normal. But the mechanism will not grasp and relock the hood. Car is still under warranty but it is a three hour drive to nearest dealer. any ideas or suggestions that I may try before contacting dealer? Thanks!
