Default R 350 Trunk Actuator issue

Greetings -
Having an issue with my tailgate/trunk... Here's what's going on...
My trunk won't open with the fob or the button on drivers door. When I push the button on drivers door, or on the fob, I can hear something going on like it's trying to open the trunk but nothing happens...
If I crawl into the back seat & use the manual unlock I can open the hatch... Additionally, if I use the manual unlock(the one in the back seat) then open the truck an inch or so, THEN hit the button on the fob(or the drivers door) it electrically opens just fine. It also CLOSES without any issues.
Do I need a new latch/actuator?
If so, where's the best(cheapest) place to get one?
