    Make sure the rear seat is locked into place sometimes the catches unclip at the top of the seat on both sides.

    If none of the above cures it mate, try some vaseline on the the V-groove of the catch in the hatch and where it meets on the boot itself, also on the rubber height adjusters, this cured mine amazingly enough!!

    Yeah it shuts bu its no getting held tightly in place as it should, if you remove the black plastic cover where the catch is and slacken the catch bolts. Let the catch go down as far as possible and then re-tighten
