How to Fix a Broken Dash Compartment Clip/Latch on Ford Territory 2004-2010 SX SY

In 2012 we bought a second hand Territory, and within a day, the latch holding the dash compartment closed broke, and it was stuck open. I tried my local Ford Dealer, who wanted $500 to replace the whole compartment. So instead, I bought a 3D printer, and printed a replacement clip. I kept printing them and selling them, and sold over 1,500 of them.

Here’s the link to buy the replacement part:

Here’s the video of me fitting the part, plus at the end I show you how the 3D printing works:

3D printing is really amazing. I’m up to my 7th printer now. It’s incredible to think of something, design it, and then just create it.
