Can I replace just the latch or lever on the front of the glove box or do I have to buy the whole glove box door.

The latch is sold seperately. Call your local dealer with the last 9 of you vin number to get the right color. Most dealers sell at the same MSRP price as all the others in town. I know cause I sell these all the time at my Chrysler dealership.

The latch of the glove compartment broke. Can't open the compartment


If you look under glove box you will see two to four screws that hold the glove box on. Take out the screws and the glove box will drop down and you can get inside and release latch..then you can get a replacement latch and replace.

My glove box does not open. The glove box is stuck in the closed position,the handle did not break off,no plastic pieces broke off,the flap you lift up on has no tension


think like a thief... pry it open with some big flathead screwdrivers on each side of the latch

then, you can go from there and see if the handle/latch can be fixed

How to open a glove box door when the latch is broken on


check under the glove box door to see if you can see the hinges. Sometimes you can unscrew the hinges from the bottom. Else you have to knock out the hinge pin on both hinges, open the door from the bottom and see if you can swing the door up to undo the latch.
If this does not work, cut a hole in the bottom ot the glove box, it is usually made of plastic or papier mache, release the latch from inside, then you can remove the plastic box once it is open and replace it with a new one. It will cost you, but it will be less expensive that breaking down the metal door!

Broken glove box latch


You are going to need another unbroken mechanical latch part there. Myself I would call local junkyards to see if they have any early 2000 vitaras, and I would look on my local craigslist to see if anyone is selling vitara parts. You buy a used one for a few bucks and put it on yourself. May have to buy the whole glovebox door, but used will still be cheap.

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!

Glove box will not open. how can i get it open? 1994 volvo 850


Use two large thin metal puddy knoves on either side of the hacksaw to protect the vinyl. Put the saw blade between them and cut thru both sides of the U shaped latch. After cutting thru both sides of the U shaped lock the door will open. You can buy a replacement brace along with a new glove box lock at www.FCPGroton.com . Take the door off of the dash. Remove the door liner screws and door liner to expose then locking mechanism. Pay close attention to how all the gears and levers come out.Reverse install the new hardware. Reinstall the door to the dash.

Glove box latch is broken cant open it want to replace it but cant remove it


Guess what? Volkwagen makes you buy the entire glove box assembly, including lock and door in gray, black or beige for around $145. No way to fix the latch because it is encased in sealedand glued plastic. Good luck! Mine just broke, also.

Glove box, LOCK BROKEN IN LOCK POSITION


If the glove box is anything like mine it is a modular piece assembled with screws.... let them break the handle.. get a replacement first from a junk dealer and have the broken part swapped out. Its like a seat belt catch in my 97 deville. The glove box in mine flopped open and the catch had broken and fell down the door of the glovebox itself. The whole door is assembled with philips screws and should be easily removed and a new latch put in.. whoever does it should not cost more than 50.00 in labor MAYBE unless you have a friend that would do it for a beer. I saw a complete glove box on ebay for 40.00 shipping ontop of that .. i saw the latch for 20.00 +shipping.
