I had to remove the housing cover that had about 8 tamper proof screws in order to remove the cover and get into the area where the brkt-latch was. I removed the broken latch found the part I needed on your website, within a few days the part arrived. It took only a few minutes to reinstall the new part and housing cover. Everything works just fine. My guess is we saved $200 from having our local repair service center to do the same job.
