The latches look salvageable... Use lots of glue or epoxy!

Found the "rods" for about $36 new. Went through the repair and the mechanism works. I used Q-Bond and it worked vey well. I did tear the rubber gasket gettint the cover off so I'm also fixing that. When completely finished I'll post some pictures.
