I looked up the repair on YouTube. The exact repair was there. Remove the ring around the boot. Remove the part of the boot by the latch. Remove the latch. Replace the latch . Refit the boot. Replace the wire ring making sure the spring is down. Taadaa! The guy on the video took two minutes or so. It took me seven because I was very deliberate in my work, and it was the first time I had done this repair. The wife was very pleased!
