A friend of mine has completed this targa catch repair by replacing the rod with a steel threaded one. The latch has been drilled and an insert placed centrally to accept the thread on the rod. To fasten the unit back together the bottom plate had to be tapped to accept 4 screws. This repair to me looks now to have a stronger mechanism than the original component.
My friend has said that if anyone is struggling to sort theirs out he will repair it for £30. Obviously this can only be done if the old one is supplied and the problem is the same as the one that has just been repaired.
For Sale – I am open to offers for this repaired one as I would like to recompense my friend for his time.
