How to fix bay door locking solenoid

Hey forum!

I found out why my door would not latch, a wire had been pulled from the solenoid. The question is, how to reconnect it? Is there a trick to getting the grey bay door panels off?

Thanks for your help. This is a 2013 Cornerstone.

Any chance you can get aholed of the wire with a pair needle-nose pliers.? Curved needle nose might help to fish around inside. Possibly a stiff wire with a hook on the end. Sliding the grommet down the wire might give you a little more room to look.
The white wire is ground, if it's not easy to remove the door skin, may be easier to ground it to one of the door screws.

How about removing the lock assembly and finding the end that way.

I’d tape a stout string to the end of the wire you have in your picture, disconnect the wire and pull it to the lock side, then tape your white wire to it and use the string to re-fish the wires.
