Lubricate latches at least once a year and it will last even longer than the original.

Amazon sells car parts?... :rofl:

Now that you've done a repair, the constitution of AS.com requires you to post pics of the repair and your van and the beer and Mexican food you consume in celebration afterwords.

It's the law.

Yep amazon sells car parts! Who knew! I got free shipping 'cause I bulked up the order with a box of golf balls.

Pics of my Van? It is like yours but very boring, the only interesting bit is left driver's arm rest that looks like the surface of the moon.

Mexican food after repair? I live in Vancouver, we do sushi along with something known as "BC Bud" :)

Please DON'T post pics of that.

Amazon sells golf balls too? Damn! I thought all they sold was dance lessons -
