I am trying to replace my interior door knobs and am really struggling to remove the latch in my bathroom door. The latch plate (which goes into the latch bore) was painted over so I assumed that’s why it wouldn't budge.
I was able to disassemble the latch while it was still in the door and remove it that way, however the latch plate is still stuck in the latch bore and possibly still a part of the latch. I’ve tried to remove it with pliers but have just managed to bend or break everything I can manage to grab onto.
Is there any way to remove this?
Is it possible that this is built into or glued into the door?
Am I going to need to replace the whole door?
