Pins holding the door in place are part of the plastic end cap on either side of pantry drawer. Very easy to replace. Need only to remove two bolts holding the broken end cap in place, remove the drawer slide from that piece by removing two more bolts, reinstalling the drawer slide on the replacement end cap, and reinstalling the new end cap. Part was surprisingly cheap and arrived much sooner than indicated.

biggest time was the cleaning of the area ;-) for the actual work it was less than 10 mins to replace. remove the three screws and there are two tabs on the back of the replacement part that you need to line up with the slots in the back and it simply snaps in place - put the screws back and you're done
