Shower Door Latch

I have a 2015 Forester 2701DS and the shower door latch that holds the door secure during travel broke. Does anyone know where I can get that part? I cant seem to find it on any of my searches.

Thanks a lot!

Scott

The latch is pretty much a hook that holds the frame of the shower door slider. Here is a picture from a different Forester model.


Here it is on my model with the latch closed over the door.


Thanks for your help!

As you can see from the picture the latch is hinged near the shower opening. It has one single screw holding it to the the shower opening.

Since the latch is so fragile, I cut a 3/8" dowel and we lay it in the sliding door track while traveling. Keeps stress off of the plastic latch, and is easy to remove.

When we picked up our 3051 at the end of June it was missing the latch. We noticed and they took one off of another RV on the lot. I'm sure you could order one.
