As a Ford owner I have come across a problem that is widespread yet, has no simple fix. The center console latch on many fords, 500, Taurus and Flex come to mind, is poorly constructed and prone to breaking. When it does break, you must replace the console lid in it's entirety or deal with the annoyance of the lid popping up regularly FOREVER.
After becoming completely exasperated at the lid popping up every time I hit a bump, I decided to fix it myself.
What follows here, are the fruits of my labors, presented as my very first instructable. (Please be kind)
