Have you pushed the correct release button? IIRC it is the one to the right. When you say it opens by itself, what do you mean by that? There is no remote release except by pushing the button.

Probably means that you have worn or hardened valve guide seals. The only problem is that doing it requires head disassembly and or that you will need the Bentley repair manual.
