My other bins are fine just this one.

They ought to specify a weight limit or strap the bottom of the bins.

I'm gonna look at that and see if I can figure it out.

Ours is Forester 3011 and just the one area is the problem. If you get it figured out post what you did Mike.

I asked for a weight limit on the storage bins and nobody at the dealer seemed to know.

compartments

Have mine in for warranty work now, Mine is both the drivers and passengers side, screws are all pulled out and the plastic is pulled away. the screws are all stripped out, the black silicone sealant was a joke, most of it was never sealed from the factory. you can see the ground from the gaps. had road dirt and water coning in, Not sure what they have done to fix it, will find out tomorrow.

1. it's not particle board. The surface material is probably lauan plywood, but the substrate will be aluminum framing. If it has broken loose due to weight, I personally would use an anchor type fastener/molly on at least a few of them.

They are typically rated for 200lbs but the problem is when that is not evenly distributed and secured. Way back in the back like that...rule of thumb is always at least 5 times. When we rate our LP tank, we have to test for 5 times the actually weight due to bouncing. So that 50lbs tool box becomes 250lbs pretty darn quick.

OK well if it's not particle board it's something that looks just like it and the screws spin and will not tighten. You mentioned on the Forester link that the black storage bins have been replaced with gray which are more stable. Unfortunately ours are the black ones. We will see if the repair that DH did holds if not it will be in for warranty work.

More stable for shrinkage...this looks more like damage from a bouncing weight that may have broken it loose. Maybe those screws are missing backer or aluminum tube. Again a hollow core door anchor might be a better fastener in that case.
