My Repair & Advice
I saw a number of videos on how to so this but only one that almost matched my machine. My replacement latch had a black button. What I did was to remove the metal ring with the spring that holds the big rubber gasket and pry the gasket away from the area of the latch. Unscrewed the old latch and disconnected the three wires that were plugged into it.Then came the hard part. The wires on the harness are VERY short and it was very difficult to connect to the new latch. Took a bit but finally got them all plugged in and screwed the latch back on and put the wire ring back on the gasket.
