Pluriel boot latch release ceased working - part snapped

If you need help with your C3 Pluriel, that seems specific to the Pluriel (like the roof), ask here. Engine and Transmission problem must be asked in the relevant topic for the problem. The Pluriel shares the same Engine, Gearbox, Brakes and Transmission as the other C3 models (see above for the correct section).

Did you know the Pluriel shares the engines, gearboxes, electrical, audio system, suspension, steering and running gear with the early C3?

Hi,
Boot latch release on right side ceased working and when attempting to open it a piece of what looks like - it’s dark, so can’t photograph now - the underside of the CITROEN embossed unit as snapped and separate away, so leftmost boot release mechanism is hanging loose.

How are you folks sourcing replacement parts?
Our local Citroen garage has had no end of issues locating new parts from the UK and when they were found overseas, there are issues with timing and delivery.

eBay, take parts off the scrap ones. The later the year the better, but don't get caught by the changes in 2006.
