Default How Can I Fix The Latch On The Middle Console Storage Box Short Of Replacing It?

The little storage compartment latch will no longer hold close. I have tried fiddling with it to no avail. Short of ordering a new one from the GM dealership does anyone have any suggestions that has had this happen?
Thanks
Mike

Mike ... have you determined if problem is catch on door or latch in console?

Try pressing the latch down a few times to see if it alternately lowers and raises. If it does not recede and spring-up as designed you might need to replace the silly thing. (I'd probably try dousing with silicone spray first).

According to an old GM parts/price guide the part number for replacement latch is 22691215 ($10).

If the lid is to blame - the tab is not replaceable so you'll need to replace the lid. They're listed at $20 with three different PN's depending on Black (15295555), Gray (15140648) or Neutral (15140647).

BTW - these prices are not current so don't be surprised if you must pay more. Perhaps - lots more.

Far2grumpy,
Thank you for all the detailed info, I really appreciate it. I will try the simple silicone spray. Its difficult to determine whats wrong with it.I removed spring mechanism and it seems fine?
Im kinda wondering if the door itself is slightly warped because of our excessive heat here in Palm Springs Ca. (Even though the Vue is garaged it hits 120 degrees now in August)
If the spray doesn't work at least now I have the part numbers.
Thx and Take Care
