    I had the same bother there's a small switch inside the lock which goes. I've just replaced mine with a new latch mechanism for under £30 from Audi. Well worth it as gets stressful when it doesn't shut and just bounces.

    Do you have the part number for that?

    Mine does the same, if I shut it and it makes the non-shutting clunk sound, I wait for the electric noise to finish, it then shuts fine. But would prefer a solution to it

    I had same problem during winter, wd40 on the latch and trigger solved it for me mate, might be worth a try before replacing parts.

    When you ring your dealer for the part give them you reg number and they'll get a part number from there. I never even looked elsewhere as dealer wasn't expensive.
