The car's nearside passenger does not latch securely

My car is a Renault Scenic DYN S 5 DCI 106 MPV Diesel.
Itís a 57 plate.
The car's nearside passenger does not latch securely. The door does not close properly, because the latch moves about. I have tied to tighten the nut, but I realise it is not working. I feel it is not working, because the washer it screws into is a hook design, and it has come off the hook. I have attached pictures as I am unable to describe it properly.
Anyone have any suggestions on how I could fix my problem?

Thank you in advance.

Re: The car's nearside passenger does not latch securely

I would imagine that the nut and hook assembly is available to buy at a dealers or maybe try a scrap yard.
How you get it out, I've no idea.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
