Cabinets falling apart, corrugated metal fastener replacements?

I have a 2014 Salem 31BKIS and the cabinets above the sofa in the slideout have broken. Im sure the door got slammed by the kids and thats on me.... Now that chunks of particle board have come out where the Corrugated Metal Fasteners were holding the divider between the two doors in place... what are my best options for fastening it back together?

I tried tapping with a hammer to drive the metal fasteners back into the wood... but thats not going to work while they are still hung up in place... I have no interest in wanting to completely dismantle the cabinets... so whats the best way for me to get that middle part stuck back in there?

Ideally whatever is used should be hidden from the front side... but whats on the back (inside) doesn't really matter.

Im not able to include a photo just yet... but Ill be able to later today if nobody knows that Im referring to.

Thanks for any suggestions!

What about cutting a piece of wood to go the full height of the cabinet and gluing it to the backside of the divider and the top and bottom rails.
