PROBLEM WITH TRUNK LID CLOSURE

2004 Infiniti M45

Interior problem
2004 Infiniti M45 V8 Front Wheel Drive 38,491 miles

When opening my trunk with either the interior button or with the key remote, the trunk will open slightly and immediately close itself. The dealer said it needs a new " trunk closure assembly" at a cost of $450 and that if that does not solve the problem it also will need " trunk stays" for another $500.

Help! This seems ridiculous to me. Sometimes by holding the button longer it will stay open. Any ideas if there is a less expensive fix?

Many thanks,
