    Thanks CountryCurt0, however, I don't think there is anything jammed in the inside latch. It feels like the glove-box door latch may be broken (i hope not). but will try it out.



    thanks.

    I had the same problem. I had to remove the entire glove box assembly in order to get the door open. After I opened the door, and removed the latch, I found that the latch was no good. I am currently looking for used one, since I would have to pay for a complete glove box assembly and that is expensive.

The most common cause is something inside the glove box jammed in the latch. Push glove box door release , and GENTLY insert a flat putty knife, plastic knife, or similar type tool in the groove of door, GENTLY try to pry open the door. U will probably (hopefully) find a napkin, map, or glove (does anybody actually put gloves in the glove box?) jammed in the inside latch. Let me know how u make out.

Key stuck in glove box


Shoot a good amount of WD-40 into the lock next to the key, get a 5 inch locking plier locked onto the head of the key, move the key a bit back and forth, in and out then pull it out, while you hold the door of the glove compartment closed with your other hand.

My 2000 olds bravada glove box door is stuck open the latch won't let me close it. Even though there is no way to lock it it seems locked! Do I need new latch or can I fix this one?


Your latch might be in the closed position before you even close the door, try using a small screwdriver on the latch while pressing the release button, if it's stuck closed then this will open it to the right position so it will lock closed when you close the door. If this does not work, sometimes the problem is in the striker (the little tab that the lock hits when the door is closed, this usually has 2 small screws holding it in place, you should be able to loosen both screws & adjust the striker forward or backward so the latch will make better contact with it.

2000 XK8 I locked the glovebox and now it won't open . any ideas


Welcome to Fixya

The car might be stucked in Valet mode. Use the black key that you have to open the trunk, it overrides the Valet Mode. The key goes in a hole that is between the X and the K on the emblem on the rear of the car.

Thank you for using Fixya!
