I just went through this with my BT7.  Problem was the aftermarket latch
mechanism.  The striker has a tang on the inboard end which broke off, leaving
the striker engaged while all the rest of the mechanism seems to work.  We had
to completely remove the latch mechanism, which isn't easy with the striker
engaged.  Then we replaced the aftermarket striker with an old one.
Hopefully, you didn't throw away your original!  Good luck!  Charlie Ulrich
