How to replace the house-latch/lock in a GoPro Hero3 Silver?

So, I'm having a struggle finding a spare house latch/lock. The black thing on-top of the waterproof housing which holds the door shut.

Where can I find one?

I don't want to buy a whole new housing when the only thing wrong is the lock.

PS Those I find on eBay are only for GoPro Hero 2...

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

you have on ebay for gopro 3, open lock to end, then just push it to front of camera, it will snap off housing.
