Just registered since I have an 08 Bene 49 with two push button latches not working. This picture posted does not resemble those on board my vessel. I have taken them apart and find that there is a white grease as well. The button is chrome plated that is attached to a plastic block with a small nob that should articulate in a groove in a small white plastic block with two spring legs that hold the button closed or open...
I know, PICTURES.
Let me see what I can do about that as they are on my iPhone
At any rate, I did attempt to take parts
out as mentioned earlier to no avail. I will do my best to get pics soon as I get to a 3G area on my phone
Also, the two latches that I am having intermittent failure with are the two I have used the most. One in the forward head
and the one that works the closet where the dog food
and treats live... so probably a poor design that wears out with moderate use. We may be traveling with a bag of spares afterall?
