2006 trunk release problem

I did a search but did not find anything on this problem. I bought my wife a 2006 Focus ZX4 SES in April 2006. Since then we have had it in 5 times because of problems with the remote trunk release. The dealer has replaced the assembly 4 times already, and we continue to have the same problem.

When she hits the remote on the key fob, or the button on the dash, all that happens is that it emits a loud rattlling sound and doesn't release. Does anyone have any suggestion for us to give the service tech? Is there maybe a TSB for this problem?

The dealer says that this is the only Focus they have seen with this problem, and cannot seem to fix it. Just last week they pulled the assembly from a 2007 that just came in that day, and 3 days later all we had was a loud rattle and no release again.
