When your door striker is broken don't throw the old one away before removing the spring clip..you need to remove the face plate to get it out without damage.. The new reproduction strikers are rubbish and wear in no time because they are produced without the spring clip..

Before installing the new striker just do this mod and add the spring clip and it will work fine..

Remove face plate..drill hole and file groove and cut slot as shown in pics..install the spring clip ..replace faceplate and burr over pins with ball pane hammer..
