Default Radio door clip broken.

Somehow managed to snap the pin from the radio door that fits into the spring jaws to hold it shut. Had a look to see if I can remove the cover to make it easier to glue it back, no joy so far, any ideas? Plan if it doesn’t split it superglue the pin in place and then fill the hole around it with epoxy to make it more secure, feck knows how I managed that clumsy bugger that I am.

Hi Martin, not much help really but Honda replaced mine when I said I couldn't open the radio door, it didn't help as it was catching on the air vent above, typical Honda! But it proves it can be done.

I have secured it, superglue for the hold in place, then as I thought dripped epoxy into the square hole around it, works again but really a smooth? Action when it takes hold but better than lying open, maybe some black marker pen to colour it.
