hehe ya tried that first.
Well made a call to a friend ( MB tech ) and below the latch there is a plastic plate. Popped that off and gained access to the latch. From there standard latch operation. Will replace latch and wire to fix problem. ( seems it broke the cable from the latch being to hard to throw. over stressed, Looks bent, hit or abused? )
Turned out to be the cable end had broken and come out of the latch.
PS: only a n00b here
