Front Boot doesnt pop

Im having an issue where my front boot doesnt want to pop up when I press the button. It unlatches but I have to jam min fingers between the lid and the headlight to get it to open up. Any ideas on how to service this?

Mine did that when I got my car. I took the WD40 to the spring loaded plunger and the latch mech. Sprayed it up, open and closed the lid a couple of times and sprayed it more. Works fine now.

I did the same the rear trunk too.

My Porsche mechanic drives a Saturn.
