The stud that goes into the release mechanism has a lock nut at the mounting end. This normally is to adj the deck lid height. I would imagine that you have a stuck release catch. Lubricating the catch might work. You can unbolt the catch mechanism and look at it without having to re-adjust the release cable. Check the spring while you're in there.
