    I have a 2012 780 and one of the top cabinet behind the driver seat has a broken latch and won't open. Anyone have any tricks without breaking door?

    Can you get in one side and not the other? If so get your head in there with a flashlight and you'll see how you can release the latch. I had to fix about 5 of mine on my NEW truck (2021).

    They don't work well for long without keeping all the screws tight and taking care of them. If you do this they do actually work well and last a long time.
