Drawer Latch Mechanism Failure

Recently a drawer latch in the bedroom failed to function. (VTDP 3709 2016) Closer examination showed the following loose parts...

I can't figure out how to reassemble. I'm about ready to disassemble a good latch to see how to fix it.

Can it be reassembled or do I just buy a replacement? From where?

These latch assemblies break all the time, many on my previous coaches and one already on this new coach. Just replace and move on.

Whenever a plastic latch breaks, I take the opportunity to replace it with a magnetic latch. Sometimes on a heavy drawer like one with utensils it takes two.

They are absolute junk. Our dealer sells them for about 3 bucks each. They don't even need a part number. They have a box of them behind the counter. I bought a couple spares for convenience but the next one that breaks I'm going to lowes for a replacement.

I keep a few on the coach for spares. Just two screws, no big deal.

I have had 2 or 3 fail so far. We've been fulltiming for nearly 2 years so they've all gotten a lot of use. I've bought these replacements from Amazon. They fit with the same screw holes, so no new drilling needed. And, you only need to replace the broken part. The part that's stationary is the same. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
