Top of Fuse Box Cover 2015 V-6 Cherokee Limited

While taking the top of the fuse box cover off I broke one of the "locks". I removed the first "lock" [not sure what to call them] however, when I applied the same pressure to remove the second one the CHEAP PLASTIC broke, I can't believe Chrysler would design something so CHEAP!!!

HAS ANYONE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO THEM????? If so, would it be covered under warranty???? Have any idea how much the top would cost??

Any information or opinions is appreciated.

THANKS,
jeepers peepers

Well, I had some electrical gremlins that got sorted out by my dealer this week. Took them 2 days of disassembling the front seat to find a few pinched wires, but everything is back to normal now and actually running better then before. While I was doing my own troubleshooting I thought that things might trace back to the fuses, so I did a continuity test on all of them. They were all fine, but I happened to bump the fuse box lid onto the floor while moving the meter probes around...needless to say it landed on the side with the retaining clips and one of them broke clean off. I inquired at my dealership about the lid cover, but it's not covered, but that might have been because I admitted to being a dim bulb and not putting it on the floor when I started tinkering with the multimeter. Lesson learned.

Ordered a new cover, cost is about $16, the trick is finding a place willing to ship it for a reasonable cost. Part # is 68212600AC at least for the 2015 MY.

I ended up going with these guys: group1autoparts.com | Genuine OEM Parts Direct

Incidentally, I found out through this little issue that the fuse cover has a full diagram of all the fuses and relays etched into the bottom of the lid, if you ever have need to do more serious troubleshooting.

Just wanted to mention that the new fuse box cover arrived this Monday and fit without any issues at all. I'll be making sure to stick the cover on the ground going forward...heh.
