The spring stay for the drivers side door pocket lid has broken at the crease of a metal bracket that sits in the lid, anyone come across this and have an idea of fix or parts required?
Looks like the bracket is just seated/glued into the lid.

Fulla,
Thanks for the response. So it not an unusual problem, much like the cracking of the door pocket bracket by the door handle!

I will speak to my OPC.

Thanks

There's a fix/preventative measure for this on RL Here

I have sorted it now, it was the problem with the top 2 photos, so I had to order a new lid, which I have now fitted.

I had the other problem previously and made up a replacement bracket myself.

Now I am onto the struggle with the glove box door dropping down on the handle side!

I have bought a new set of the lock catch, but I am not sure that is the problem.
