I popped one off opening the door ... guess they aren't all that hardy. When I did mine I bought an extra just in case... It isn't a difficult job. Here is a step-by-step to do it.
Replacing storage compartment door latch bolt/plunger
Tools: Phillips screwdriver, drill & 3/16 or 1/4"Ě drill bit, pop rivet tool, 2 3/16"Ě aluminum pop rivets
Winnebago part #121947-01-01A Bolt w/Plunger. Lichtsinn Motors 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. Depending on your door design/construction, you might want to 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.
