The console lock (or armrest lock, part# 20 in
) on my 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid broke and the console lid stays up. I
bought a replacement. I didn't take a picture before I took the old
one off. Now I can't figure out what to place the free end of the lock
spring (part# 22 in the picture) against, so that the spring can force
the latch down and toward the back of the car to lock the console.
Here's a picture right now where I hold the lock:
The lower left is the front of the car (instead of upper right as in
the above diagram). The rod in the lock will go where the yellow line
is. The left red arrow points to one end of the spring that hooks into
the tiny hole on the lock. The right red arrow is the "free" end of
the spring. It needs a backing to push this end of the spring so the
front of the lock is pushed down (i.e. toward back of the car when the
lid is lowered). But I can't find anything to be used as a backing for
this "free" end.
Thanks for help.
