This all is getting more complicated than I expected.
I received the Fiat latch. It is a used latch that has been cleaned up and replated in yellow zinc. Unfortunately, the plating flakes off. I also got a latch cover.
My pull wire has a crimped on loop on the end I didn't want to undo so I rendered my old latch unusable getting it off.
The hole for the wire connection doesn't align with the wire tube in my car so I decided I would drill and tap a hole above it and put in a #6 machine screw to attach the loop in my wire. It took multiple drill bits including 2 cobalt to make the hole and when tapping the hole the tap broke off.
So, I used a piece of safety wire to tie the pull wire to the latch hole and slot.
The moment had come to try it. That is when I discovered that the post slot in the latch is more narrow than the slot in my old latch and the post on my deck lid is too big.
