Try adjusting the two rubber stops either side of the catch on the underside of the bonnet try !Removed! them in. I had the problem they where screwed in too far so my bonnet was loose.yours might be too far out.

Had the same problem on my Mk7, was closing but not fully locking. Took it to my local dealer and the adjusted the catch itself as the spring was not releasing correctly.
