Latch not working properly

The dashboard continually says tailgate ajar, and I found the problem. This latch unlocks very easily. I can unlock it by simply pressing down on it. The second latch in the video is the exact same type of latch and you can see how it should stay locked when I push on it. Are there any other solutions other than just replacing the entire latch?

Hello,

It appears that the internal mechanism is just too weak on that latch.
Unfortunately, the solution is to replace it.

I have attached the replacement diagrams for the latches below.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.
