    I have a 2014 Autotrail and the habitation door bin has broken, its the door panel that has cracked are the bin pins locate. Has anyone else had a similar problem and is there a fix. Thanks in advance.

    Easy, if you can remove the inner door panel.
    If not it may need more thought.
    As Techno said....pictures ?

    Door liners usually crack due to flexing and lack of strengthening. Typical of motorhome converters making stuff look good enough that you'll buy it but without considering its usage and longevity.
    Think in terms of aluminium strip sikaflex rivets or anything else you can do on the inside that won't be visible

    I have had exactly the same problem on my 2013 Autotrail. We never used the bin anyway so just took it off. I can't see an easy solution so we just "binned" it. Now looking for one of those hanging tidy thingies in its place.

    Rapido door pocket lids all crack eventually, mine did in two places but I've riveted a piece of Ali angle inside

    If it were me I would glue a strip of suitable material inside that can be re drilled then fill the missing material of the door skin
    Probably best drilled before glueing in place

    Won't that come under warranty, i think ours is 3 years from new although something happens with the 3rd year but it is still covered just a different way of claiming. If it cracked already then i would angle on not fit for purpose unless there is another reason it broke.
