Default Top center console cover doesn't latch well

Hi all,
I lifted the center console lower cover to access the large storage space at the bottom and the top cover came unlatched, which spilled all of the stuff in there all over the rear floor. Is there a way to adjust the latch for the top cover so that it won't open by itself?

Thanks,
Oak

I had the same problem. I put some white grease on the latch and it works fine now.

On the latch? The piece with the hooks that is on the lid moves very freely, it just seems like the hooks don't fully engage the recess on the bin. It looks like I need a way to adjust the hooks toward the back maybe 1/4" or so, but I don't see an obvious area to adjust.

Thanks,
Oak

Hey Lawdog,
I just gave the cover a firm push and it locked up tighter than a frog's azz.
Perfect!!! Now I love this truck even more. I was a little bummed that something as simple as that was out of spec. Wrong again!


Thanks a ton,
Oak

Yup same issue on my 2012. I just have to make sure to press down a bit harder to latch it.

Just have to make sure you give it a good push when closing it. My 09 and my 13 have the same problem. Guess dodge never bothered to fix it

I have to also push hard down to latch it. It took a while to get used to because you feel like you might break something.
