Espace tailgate - only one latch releases

Hello fellow Renault Espace 2001 CDi 'The Race' drivers.
I've had release problems with the tailgate for 3 yrs. I solved them with grease. However seeing that you can't take the trim panel off without the tailgate being open prompted me to drill a 30mm hole in the trim directly opposite the solanoid. So I can stick a finger in and move the slider to the unlock position. A nice rubber bung covers the hole when not in use.
I now have a different problem:- The outside handle unlatches the left hand side latch - and I can see and feel movement on that side, but the right latch is unmoving.
What can the team suggest please?
Currently in selwynthedustbinman's garage:
