    I'm not aware of a repair option. The general practice is to buy a new lid from a dealer - about £65 ish iirc.

    sorry john , rushing , I failed to read the whole message ,yeah if it's leather bound to be more expensive..
    When my catch first broke I bought one of those magnetic cupboard door catches from DIY,,
    fitted the mag; part in the a'rest ,and the thin metal strip in the lid, not visible when the lids closed and
    it worked fine !!!,if you don't want to spend the extra for a new lid ...
