I think i've PM'd you about this before, but was this metal a brass, gold color? If so, it came from the plastic pivot that rotates inside the latch. That metal is a contact that actuates to have the latch release.
It's hard to explain, but if you remove the latch from the car and then the two philips screw that is holding the center mechanism in place, you'll see what i'm talking about. The plastic piece is about the size of a nickel that rotates, and the "metal" contact gets jacked up overtime because it rotates back and forth.
In my case, I source the part online and swap it out myself of much less than what the dealer wanted. Took about half an hour to replace. There is an updated part number for the luggage door closer 6465050040
