I'm having trouble with the trunk/hatch latch on my '04 Focus SVT. It works only intermittantly. Sometimes pressing the latch button on the dashboard does not operate the hatch solenoid, and I have to insert & turn the key in the hatch lock. Other times, I can't lock the hatch at all — the latch on the hatch refuses to catch the "post" on the car body.
Is this a common problem? How difficult to fix? How expensive if I take it to a dealer?
