You may need to replace the locking mechanism. It's probably broken and won't allow the trunk to close fully. Take a screw driver and try forcing it down to see if it closes all the way.

If its the power trunk option you can just put a flathead screwdriver in the top of the mechanism and push to the left. It should start to go down. It should run for about 3 or 4 seconds before it stops
