Front Truck Lid Won't Unlock

Does anyone have this problem with my 2003 Boxster 2.7 liter.

I have an intermittent problem while opening my front truck lid via key fob or hood release switch located next to the driver's seat.

When activated, I can hear the locking mechanism actuate but the lid remains in the locked down position.

The problem is really apparent when it's hot outside and less apparent when ambient temperatures are mild to cold. I literally have to wait for the front of the car to cool down before trying again.

Can anyone offer a solution?

Thanks!

Have you tried lubricating the latch mechanism? It usually works.

Can you explain how to conduct this maintenance?

I'm pretty handy with tools and I perform all maintenance projects for my Boxster myself.

Thanks
