Hello.

I'm renovating MGA Coupe but I don't have complete door latch for right side. I'd like to buy this part but I don't know where. I searched online auctions and found door latche only United States. Do you know the replacement for this part or shop where I'm buy this? Thanks very much for help.

Greetings

Coupe door latches are very difficult to find. Can you be more specific, is it the mechanism at the front of the door on the inside or the latch with the gear wheel on it at the rear?

Glad you found the parts you need.

If you are new to MGAs then you can find plenty of help on this site and also on the MGAGuru website where you will find everything you need to know about MGAs. There is also a section in it on the Coupe.

Good luck with your restoration. Do you have any pictures of the car?

Cheers

Dave
