    Default Rear left storage compartment is stuck

    Not sure how to get it open. Any suggestions? Before you ask, it is unlocked.
    Fred is a 2010 RT SM5.

    I am not a mechanic. When I have a tool in my hand, 911 needs to be on Standby.

    Hi I,
    Push ( medium hard) on the compartment door as you pull the lever to open it. Lubing everything will help but the cable can be adjusted. It isn't to hard to get to the cable adjusters.

    +1 on what Lew L said. Our left saddlebag on our '18 RTL needs to be pushed in as I pull the opening lever. It's not that much of a problem as it always comes open, but I probably should adjust the cable and lube it. Oh, well, I'll just call it an anti-theft feature.

    Read page 137 of your operator's guide.

    Yep, +2 on Lew. My 14 stuck for a while when it was new and a gentle push with my knee popped it right open. A little lube seemed to cure the problem. A light whack with the heel of my hand makes sure both sides are latch 100%. You'll never forget that if you ever have one that pops open on the freeway. Thank goodness the dash lights up and goes crazy when that happens.

    Be careful. I've read on Facebook post where more than one owner has snapped the lever off.
