I had exactly the same problem with my 95 s420. I unscrewed the plastic cover that houses the latch mechanism and found out that one of the rivets that holds the latch in place was sheared off. I simply glued it in back in place and now it shuts with the least of force. It turns out the latch was moving slightly because it was not anchored correctly, causing the hook not to engage right away. I recommend opening the hard plastic housing the latch mechanism (the hard plastic that opens to reveal the coin storage and cup holder) and carefully look at the lock. - jim
