New Owner: rear trunk door won't lock

New owner 2014 G63 and I noticed that I can't lock the rear door to the trunk. If I lock the car with the remote it makes the alarm engages. As soon as I grab the trunk door and open it the alarm sounds. Clearly it's not locking and car is thinking someone is breaking in. What could be wrong with the lock ?

Pull the inner door panel and see if the actuator is attached properly.

my guess is the actuator needs to be replaced.

Do you have a guide to remove inner door panel on trunk door and how to remove or test actuator?
