You are right, they did, from Morris Marina or early Landrover Discovery, the later being easier to find (Ebay).

If you have a look at the mechanism (in the door) you will find a rod has come out of a joint, refit this and put say an elastic band round the joint to keep it together and all should be well.   There has been previous postings on this topic if you want further info try a search

Hi we had to change our catch a few years back. Yes they off a Marina. We asked AS they put us in touch with supplier , Cheltenham Laminating Tel. 01452 713098 who said send £5. We did. They sent new one. Job a bit fiddly.
Good luck
