    Default Waeco Coolfreeze CDF-45 lid replacement

    Good day guys and gals
    Does anyone know of a place that has spare parts for the abovementioned fridge? The lid is secured with two small plastic clips. The one broke off and the other one is hanging by the skin on its teeth.
    I see they do sell them online, import from AUS but I hope to find a local supplier.
    If no new lid can be found I will need to drill and add those plastic hinges as my brother suggested.
    Any info in the regard is appreciated.

    The other option being to build it up with pratley steel and file down to the needed size.
    Some pics of the problem.

    Can I ask how this happened?
    My one freezer has the same type of lid and I would like to prevent the same problem.

    Basically I removed the lid and just placed it on top to let the inside breath. Then my maid came and put a heavy box on the lid thinking it was closed and the pins broke off

    Well so far I have fixed it up until here... Will have to wait till the weekend to see if it works as the fridge unit is back in my home town.
