Default bay door

I was not able to lock the bay door . When i lifted the latch nothing would move. I removed the screws and found that the rod that rotates to open or lock the door was completly rusted down to a toothpick. Now the problem as i was driving the left side fliped down locking the bay . Any ideas on how to open without destroying the door ?

Al You may have to drill the lock out, that would allow you to rotate the latch on the door. Please check with George and good luck.

I have run into door latch problems,I removed a door on an older FC,and on another i used a steel rod and slid it in from the bottom and unlatched the door.
And if I could bill for my time I would have a house on the moon!
