That should be simple to fix. The latch is held with a pin. Probably the pin just fell out. If not, then it's possible the plastic around the pin failed. That could probably be fixed with epoxy.

G'day g'day.
Thank the sky above you were right, it was only the latch and not the motor or the drive head, all fixed now, much to Mr. Chen's surprise. Surprise at the fact that the latch was the only thing that was broken. Ah for the good ole days when most electronic gadgets were built to last. The 1541 was bought in 1990 or 1991 according to the recollection of Arthur, it's previous owner.
I discovered in January 1989 that my friend Simon had a c128d, but I'm not sure exactly when he bought it, either way, it's still going strong in 2010
