S1 Elite boot latch handle

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Does anyone have a photo of the original boot latch handle? I have checked rdent, but the boot latch doesn't seem to be in any of the interior diagrams.

The one on my car ('76 504) seems to have broken off at some point, and it seems as if someone welded a very ugly bean of metal onto the shaft that goes through the rear right passenger arm rest cutout (but this could very well be the original inner part of the handle, with the cover having broken off).

Any recommendations on a fix?

Hello Jono,

Mine from a 74 Elite has the top half broken off from the 'T' handle, but you can see how it should look.

Not sure about a replacement other than the usual spares/parts suppliers.
