Boot not 'latching' enough to arm the alarm...any solutions/ideas?

    Today I found a little niggle with the car. I went to lock the car via the remote, and the usual single 'blink' of the lights wasn't there. The car was completelly locked, but no flashing red led's in the doors either - i.e. the alarm hadn't armed.

    I narrowed it down to the boot latch. Even though the boot closes properly and locks as it should, it needed a good slam to get it 'closed' enough to register with the alarm system.

    Obviously, an hour later, it worked fine with a normal 'minor slam' of the bootlid.

    Anyone had this before? Any suggestions where I should squirt a little wd40 or something?

    Many thanks
