Re: Top box latches breaking 2005?
I think it is known that over time the latch will break if you just close the lid and then push down on the lever. You need to put weight on the lid above the latch and then push down on the lever. I put 200,000 miles on two LTs and never had a problem.
Now the mirror is another story.
