Does anyone have any idea how to fix a broken compartment latch? My Swing's left compartment can't stay opened at all; I think the plastic part must have been broken. It locks up fine though.

IIRC It’s a flat metal spring somewhere on that left hinge. It will be tedious to get to. You’ll need a right angel phillips head screwdriver to reach in & up to remove that screw from the hinge. Good luck. I’ve never been successful in doing that. But have always resorted to waiting until I had the entire front cover (fairing) OFF for some other reason and then removed that entire left cubby pocket to access that cubby lid screw.

Sounds like it's going to be a tough one to fix. But thanks for the advice, I will see what I can do
