Default Center Console won't stay closed

I'm trying to find the proper part # for the console lid part where it keeps the lid in the closed postion. The little plastic part broke the end off and won't stay closed. I believe it'* either #3 or #4. Correct me if I'm wrong?

I thinks its part #4. Its a little tip of plastic that locks the center armrest in place, I had to replace mine awhile back somewhere in the 100 from the dealer, I have seen a few around the wreckers here, I can see what I can do, if you need one,

You'll probably need 4 and 5 because some latches use different catches over the years there was at least one revision.

Thanks tripscarcare95 & BillBoost37. It was starting to go during the summer and finally gave way. I should have looked at the yard during NEBF but I totally forgot, maybe the rain had something to do with it.

#4 if the mounting plate.......$13.14
#3 is the base and it says to request price.

Usually all I find at the yard are broken ones. Many people have found cutting the spring solves the issue of it trying to stay open. Then it'* merely a hold it open and let it lay closed.

Maybe a lower cost easier fix?

Actually I never thought of that, if the fix is only #4 than it'* a fairly low cost repair, if #3 is included then who knows how much that is.
