top case latch
I have a bmw 28 litre topcase and it was hard to open, so i drilled out the two rivets up front and lifted out the inside pan where all the cables etc are out. There is a plate that moves up and down with teeth on it and that slides the bars out on both sides to pull down and lock the case. One of the slides was in the wrong position and the teeth don't line up the same on both sides. Does anyone have a picture of this inside mechanism. Trying to see if i put the slide back in wrong. Both sides have to match with the teeth in the correct spot so the slides will move out the same. Like timing a vehicle everthing has to match up. Looks like with all the fusing one of the slides moved out of place.
