I would stop in at a dealer or a place that sells truck parts and just replace the whole assembly also see if there is a salvage yard because the f150 are the same vehicles one is just a pick up and the other is an suv you can also try NAPA and they may be able to help you get the part back together or the part you need

Lower glove box latch 2006 prius popped What do I do to reconnect button?

I just had a similar problem this past weekend. I gently pushed the latch with a small screwdriver until it closed. Then I pushed the release button to re-open the latch. After that it hooked the glove box just fine. I've open/closed the glove box at least a dozen times since then and the problem hasn't reoccurred yet.

Glove box wont latch

If the glove box was closed wrong than the latch that keeps the glove box shut will close on itself. If you take a pen or a screwdriver and put little pressure on it and try the handle again it should open. if thats not the case than replace the handle, the locking mechanism with in the handle or the spring broke or came apart.

How do I change a headlight bulb on my 2001 X Type. Near side dipped beam

Get a torch and a piece of dowelling about 30cms/12ins long. screw small hook into the end of it. The spring clip nearest the centre of the car can be undone by hand. Use the flat end of the piece of dowelling to push the other clip off. you can get a hand onto the bulb housing and pull it away. change the bulb. put the housing back in place. then use the hooked end of the dowelling to pull the spring clip nearest the wing back into place, this is where the torch comes in handy. its dark in there.
secure the other clip by hand. I had three bulbs go in quick succession. I can now do this in about 10 min. It is best to replace the bulbs with original equipment. since I did that no more blown bulbs.

How to replace glove box latch The glove box latch is broken off and I can't get it open. I can get a new latch but don't know how to install it----am afraid I will break something. Help!

Remove the glove box: unscrew 3 screws inside the box (in a row towards the top) and 2 on the outside (one on the bottom right side- open the car door to access it, and one on the bottom left side). Grab the bottom of the box and pull it toward you. It will come off.

Once it's off, flip it over. There are 2 screws that hold the latch housing on the box (you'll find them in the 2 circles that are cut into the plastic). Unscrew them.

Next, flip it back over to the front and stick a small flat screwdriver between the latch housing and the glove box part that it's stuck into. Gently pull the latch and the whole thing should come out.

Pop the new one in, replace the screws, put your glove box back in your car, and you're good to go!

How can I remove a lodged oil dip stick? Top part of grip has broken off. Someone tried to remove it but lodged it in further down.

Needle nose plyers.
If those wont reach in far enough - you might have to remove the dipstick tube..
