Stupid question....but are the mechanisms side specific? Or does the lock orientate diffently in the mechanism dependent on which side its for.. urs seems to be for a right side bag as opposed to a left side bag..
Well, turns out latch was broken afterall. Just gunked up and stuck. Found another thread on the forum where by the original poster took the advice of his trusted mechanic and soaked the whole assembly in hot water with liberal amount of Dawn dish soap.. working the mechanism and sloshing it around freed up amount of gunk which got everything working... lubed it with spray on graphite
So i try it and wouldnt u know it.....success!!
I will admit i cheated a little with a pan of petrol and alot of ventilation.. followed by a soaking in dawn. Lubed it with liquid graphite which dries to a powder..
