I thought that I would share a simple and cheap solution to my broken rear door latch. When trying to lock the door with the key it didn't make the usual 'click' and would not lock. From the inside the small locking lever would not stay in the upper locked position which suggested a broken spring which indeed it was. I got a spring repair kit from dcplandroverparts.com which came in 2 days and contained a new spring, 5 rivets and comprehensive instructions to effect the repair. It took about 30 mins which included cleaning and greasing the latch before re-assembly. The cost was 5.50 including delivery. I was very impressed with the whole service.
I hope that this may assist someone with a similar problem.
Cheers Craig
Very Happy
