Side Storage Bin

I picked up my LE CC 4x4 this week (a week early!) I was troubled by the effort required to close the side storage bin, which of course my dealer said was "typical". It really took a slam to close it. For those of you with the same concern, just loosen the two 10mm bolts holding the loop or catch inside the bin, pull the catch toward you while tightening and the problem is solved. A nice firm push is all it will take. All the trucks on my dealer's lot were the same, so I assume many of us are having the same problem. I try to avoid going to the dealer as much as possible for issues I can take care of myself. Hope this is useful.

Thanks for the tip. :)

Another thing I found was that the grease the put in the latch mechanism does NOT like very low temperatures. When it was 15 degrees I couldn't get the mechanism to function without playing with it for a bit... Luckily for me, it RARELY gets that cold here...
