Partition out of track

On my 2020 FC 28 RBQ, the pull bar on the partition at the rear bedroom has come out of the track. It looks like the plastic "button" that is supposed to go into the track is somewhat bent on one side. Is there a way to get this back in the track without removing the entire track? If I do get it back in, does anyone have any experience regarding whether it will stay in, or just come out again? If I can give it a quick fix that is likely to work, I won't have to mess with warranty work, but if it isn't likely to stay fixed, I won't bother with a quick fix (if there is one).

Pic attached, but rotated 90 degrees. Not sure how to fix it.

Thanks for any input!

You can jam it back in but I’d recommend just pushing up on the end of the track, removing it from the bracket, and then sliding it in at the end of the track.

If you’ve only pulled it out once it will probably be ok and probably stay in the track if you are gentle with it.

Once those plastic bits get pulled through the track a few times they get all bent up and won’t stay in any longer. At that point they need to be replaced (either individually or you buy an entire new accordion door)

It is very easy to yank that that accordion door out of the track. As Wulfraat points out, the track can be moved at one end to slide the thing back in place. It may be necessary to remove a screw holding the track.

Here is another thread about the same subject: https://www.airforums.com/forums/f44...ml#post2409502.

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize how the track was held up. I'll give it a try.
