Entertainment Ctr.

I have a 2004 235GTS and the entertainment ctr. cabinetry is "sagging" to the point that it has opened a gap has opened up where the trim meets the cab on both sides (driver's side is worse than pass side)


Has anyone encountered this? What supports this cabinet?

Should be supported by the cab roof floor. How about a picture from further back?

Well, it is modified cabinet since that is no the stock TV or woodworking below that. If anything that should have helped since it used to be a tube TV in there.

But who knows what they did to make that modification or what they removed. It is more than likely just that front fascia piece that is sagging. Can you put a square edge on it and see how far that bottom wood style is sagging?

I installed the modification, there was nothing removed just a small shelf added for the TV and Blue Ray to sit on. What is there is about 40 lb lighter than the TV that came with it, and it had already settled to it's present position, before that was installed. The whole cabinet moves, it is not just the fascia.

OK, while I wanted to keep my repair as close to the factory installation as possible, I could not see any way to get to the supporting structure (evidently a wood stringer about 6" forward of the cabinet fascia) without at least partially dismantling the cabinet. So I raised the cabinet back up as close as I could to it's original position and used a couple of 3/4" PVC pipe couplers to support it (1 on each side), directly under the vertical stiles, secured in place with a metal strap screwed to the coupler and cab roof. Then I added an extra screw and button cover to the trim bolster on each side. Looks a lot better now:
