This same problem happened to me about a year and a half ago. Through some exploration and tinkering, I found that the bolts that held the hook, which secured the glass to the latch when closed, became loosened. I simply tighened them up, but still had issues. So first off, wriggle that hook, if it is loose tighten it. The trick is, there is play in the orientation of the hook. I had to reloosen it and adjust it a few times to get the right angle so that it would latch properly. Since then I haven't had a single issue with it. Hope that helps.

Climb into the rear storage area from the back seat and using a screw driver remove the door skin from the hatch. This will give you access to the linkages and latch mechanisms from the inside.
