How to remove glove box from 2008 335xi coupe

I have removed the visible torx fasteners and the glove box assembly is loose in the dash, but something at the top and out of view is holding it back from sliding out of the dash.

This may not be what you want to 'hear'.

I advise you to STOP!
The force of one of these airbags deploying, can easily break your neck, or remove parts of your head!

I know how that sounds coming from a stranger, but most of all I wish you to be SAFE!

MANY mechanics have made a fatal mistake when removing an airbag. All it takes is one small static spark, and the bag will deploy.
The bag deploys so fast, you won't Even have time to respond, and get out of the way!

The metal bracket of the air bag must be faced away from you, you should wear an ESD wrist strap, (And have it connected to a good ground), the bag must be held in a certain position when installing, and there is criteria to meet with the car, (Battery, connections for the air bag deploy switch, etc.), also.

Airbag's are already deployed? What about the new ones you will install? Please, leave this to a pro.
Thank you for letting me state this.

Hi obviously your fuse is ok as you can hear power going to the fuse box when you hit the switch hence the clicking noise, i suggest you check the connections on the back of the fog lamp and make sure they are not loose as this is a common fault, if they are loose simply secure them and your done.
Hope this helps

I broke the latch on the glove box. I want to replace the opening mechanism on the glove box door but don't know how to remove the assembly from the glove box door. I need to open the door to retrie


From what I can tell, it looks like u have to remove the whole glovebox door which entails removing the lower dash panel on the passenger side.. That should give u access to screws to remove glovebox door. Don't tug on the door when u remove screw's, just enough space to get ur hand or something else up inside to unlatch.. If u need further info, let me know

Can't remove heater assembly


Has to be other nuts or fasteners. Check on the firewall side, too, behind the engine. There could be nuts or fasteners on that side.
You do have the heater hoses already removed? I think you just missed all the nuts holding the heater case. Good job getting that far, just keep looking, pretty sure there would be more than just two nuts, even one more, but check on the firewall side.

Where is the computor located


Remove the glove box door. The PCM in a Grand Am is located behind the glove box. You do not need to remove the entire glove box, just the door. Remove the glove box by opening the door any emptying its contents. Squeeze together the outside part of the glove box that becomes visible while open. Squeezing it will release the clip from its fastener, and the glove box will slip right off.

I need to remove a radio from a 1989 Chevy Caprice. How do I do it?


1: Remove Ashtray
2: Remove Glove Box Door
3: Remove Glove Box (yes it is necessary)
4: Undo all screws on the center dash piece. there are two up top, two on the bottom and 2 or 3 under the dash
5: In the open space where the glove box is, find the temp control cable and unhook it from the heater box. Should be a screw and a fastener
5: GENTLY pull the panel loose. Remember this part is 20+ years old and not easily replaced if broken
6: Unhook all wires and vacuum lines from the rear of the climate controller remove all wires from radio.
7: unscrew the radio part of the center dash piece from the metal support frame. it should be str8 forward and easy to do.

I have done this a few times and it now takes about 10 minutes for disassembly but you should probably figure an hour to an hour and a half to do this.
