Top Luggage Lock
« on: March 08, 2012, 02:21:12 am »
Not the latch but the little doohiky that it latches on to.  The inner threads on the hole for the mounting screw have apparently sheared off.  It's a really tiny hole.  I have super glued the screw in the hole for the time being.

If I buy the OEM lock assembly ($58.00), does it come with this part?
I'm thinking of trying a slightly larger self tapping screw as a replacement.  Any thoughts?

You might try a bolt with a washer and a nut that would fit through the existing hole.  I actually drilled mine out to fit a bolt I happened to have on hand and it works fine.
