Console Lid Latch for 1998 Cherokee

I have two 98 model cherokee's. Both center console lid latches are broken. Original part number is 55115622c. I have purchased new latches from mopar but they will not work. The latches have been superceded with a new part number 55037537AA. The problem is that the new latch deisgn interferes with the console and snaps it before you get the lid fully closed. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this and had a fix for it.
