Default 2003 Beetle door latch issue

Hi all

I've just been told from the VW specialist that my car has a fault with the drivers door latch. The alarm keeps going off and they have traced the issue to a faulty micro switch in the latch.

The problem is they want £205 to fit a new latch. Can anyone tell me where I can get a replacement for my car. The part number is 6X2837014C and can you tell me if this is the sort of job I could do myself in my garage?

Thanks

Trevor

You can actually likely fix it without replacing it. Here is some info for you. Its a very common problem:
