2005 International CCD cabinet hinge problems - or are we just stupid?
Hey friends! When you can't figure it out, hit up the Forum!
Our 2005 International CCD has the modern style interior, including these white melamine cabinets. So the "main" cabinet, as in the largest one, which is right under the sink has had problems since the day we got it!
It always swings open and falls halfway off, despite the fact that I replaced the latch and always secure and double-check it. Basically when we enter the AS after driving, that cabinet door will always be hanging off by the bottom hinge only and contents strewn about the cabin.
Obviously, I always snap the hinge back on and jiggle a little to test that it"snapped" and it does but whenever I even just open the cabinet, the top hinge comes apart.
My concern is that I'm missing some little "secret" about how to re-fasten the hinges. But I'm beginning to doubt that because it really does click into place and appears to be secure. But then it comes off again.
Is there some trick? Or are these hinges just done for?
And, I'm concerned about replacing the hinges because the door is melamine - I won't be able to screw new ones in, right?
Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks, as always,
