Unhappy k1200lt trunk latch plastic spacer

Hey Guys,

I posted a thread before if someone might have info on the plastic spacer that is part of the trunk latch assembly. I purchased the handle from Evan Guy, and started removing and replacing the mechanism. When I removed the plastic spacer under the latch channel, it was mushy and in pieces. Because of this I need a replacement piece or if one of you could give me the thickness of this piece, I can fab one. The part is not for sale from anyone. Please help if you can.

Re: k1200lt trunk latch plastic spacer

Nick, I just went out and pulled out my liner to take a look at it. No way to measure it directly with the tools I have but I did measure it indirectly. I measured from the top edge down to a metal ruler to establish the bottom edge against the top side of the spacer and set my caliper to 0.00 there. Then I removed the ruler and extended it down to the bottom edge under the spacer and came up with 1.47mm. It is probably 1.5mm but anything close to that should work.
