GT4 door latch same as Fiat x19?

My passenger side door latch on the door and the striker on the body is junk so I am wondering if the Fiat x19 door latch assembly will work. There is a parts car in the local Atlanta area and I could get the whole thing cheap if it would work. The exterior handles look close....

Jay,
I recall reading somewhere that they were the same part. I'l try to find the article (though I've read so much over the last few months about the GT4 that it may be difficult!)

Ferrari's: 360 Modena, 550 Maranello
Ex's: Dino 308 GT4, 612 Scaglietti
The Rest: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Porsche 911 2.7s, Porsche 911 3.2 Carerra, Ducati 916... and the Land Rovers

I remember it as well before I bought mine but when I noticed mine needed to be replaced I started scrambling to find where I read that.

3rd paragraph down.
Classic Ferrari 308 GT4 buying guide - Telegraph

Think I might have read it somewhere else as well. A Daily Telegraph article might not be enough to convince you to order?!

Found on another site. Don't take it as gospel, but seems like it might be a safe bet.

The X1/9 door handles are a direct replacement for the GT4 handles. But on the X1/9 the base of the handle is made of plastic, while the GT4 are metal. All of the other parts are identical. The base is a non wear item, so I would pick up an X1/9 unit, and cannibalize it for parts to repair your original.

Alternatively look at http://www.eurospares.co.uk/breaking.asp. They're breaking a couple of 308 GT4s so you might pick up a door handle at the right price there.
