The plastic bolt plunger has broken on one of my compartment doors.

I have identified the part:
See WGO Parts Drawings: 2002 WGO Compartment Group
Key# 7
# 121947-01-01A BOLT-SLIDE W/PLASTIC PLUNGER

Has anyone ever changed one of these?
The assembly looks riveted into place.

Can anyone provide specfic instructions?

It's a pretty easy replacement job. I didn't even have to do the string thing described in the below instructions on mine. The rod easily dis-engaged from the old bolt assembly, and the easily re-engaged the new one.

Tools: Phillips screwdriver, drill & 3/16 or 1/4" drill bit, pop rivet tool, 2 3/16" aluminum pop rivets

Winnebago part #121947-01-01A Bolt w/Plunger. Lichtsinn price apx $5 each (local dealer price apx $12.95)

Drill out old 3/16" aluminum rivets. From inside the door, remove the latch mechanism. Tie a string onto the rod & hold it in place with the clip. (You're going to pull the rod partially out the side, and if it falls into the door you'll have to take the door apart to retrieve it)

Pull the bolt out (the rod will come with it) until you can disengage it from the actuating rod (a couple of inches or so), taking note of what hole in the bolt the rod is in. Put the new bolt on the rod, making sure the bolt is oriented the correct way, & using the same hole for the rod. Shove the bolt back in, pulling the string at the same time to guide the rod.

Pop rivet the new bolt assembly into place, remove the clip and string from the rod, and reinstall the rod & clip into the latch mechanism. Re-install the latch and cover, and you're done.

Paul,

Thanks for the information. That's what I thought, but, I would not have thought about tying a string to the end of the rod...just in case.

I appreciate your help.

btw: This one broke off inside the plunger tube and I was able to get the compartment door open by taking the screws out of the latch. Not all latches can be removed that way, how would you get a compartment door open if you could not access the latch screws??

- #1 I presume you mean the catches where the latch bolt extends on each side of the door? That's the easiest way to open an inoperable door on my coach.
- #2 I have also seen a door opened with a long screwdriver stuck up from the bottom to pry the bolt back.
- #3 ...order two (or more) replacement striker bolts and after you have them in hand, pop the door open by breaking the other one too!! (of course, it probably won't break when you want it too....)
