Hi, i don't know if any one can help but the latch on my 03 Fusion dashboard storage lid has broken. Ford want best part of £100 for a complete lid and do not sell the latch seperately, although it comes out easily enough.
Seems to replace the whole lid most of the radio console and heater control area has to come out and i don't really want to do that otherwise a lid from a scrap car might have helped.
Anyone got a latch or a broken lid with the latch in at a sensible price and i would be pleased to hear about it.
Same if anyone knows where i might get one.
I've just sorted mine out.
Remove the rubber mat to reveal the 4 screws across the back. next the hinge.
Gently lever the lugs out to release the spring mechanism from the lid.
As Ford have used some sort of epoxy resin to glue the 2 halfs of the lid together, it cracks apart quite easily upon insertion of a slim screw driver. (Anyone else lost the plastic trim from the door pillars for the same reason; glues no good?)
I found one of the tiny locating lugs on the button had sheared off (They're too small and delicate.) managed a good bodge to get it working again, pin and glue.. You will need some dexterity with glue and making improvisations.
Cheapest route...your local scrap yard.
