Title: Broken Fridge Access Panel Retainer
Post by: Ron Dittmer on October 07, 2021, 08:37:59 am
Cleaning up our 14 year old PC after our recent 4 week trip, I thought I would remove the outside fridge and furnace panels to inspect and clean.  I have not had either one off since 2007.  I was happy to see that everything inside looked good with minimal debris and grime, the result of indoor storage.

Anyway, while removing the fridge panel, either I broke one retainer, or it broke on it's own sometime over the years.

Shopping around for replacements, I learned there are two different choices.  There is a thick wall and a thin wall version.  Our 2007 PC takes the thick wall version.  I bought two packages of 2 from etrailer for $26.23 including taxes and shipping.

I found them cheapest at etrailer but maybe they are sold cheaper elsewhere.  I replaced only the broken one and reused the inner piece because it is painted silver from the full body paint job.  I have 3 spares now.

I would hate to loose that panel, especially because of the full body paint job.
