Glove box is stuck

I bought a 2003 tiburon and the glove box is stuck. Is there any way to open it?

    I have the same exact problem. I feel sure that something has shifted inside the box and won't let it drop. I have tried everything short of breaking the latch. I removed the 3 screws at the bottom, thinking I could then just drop the whole box down with no luck. I have pried until the brink of breaking the door with a flat head screwdriver. I need to get into the box to get my registration and things out so I need help badly.

The lid "locks" into place by two retractable nibs on the outer sides of the glove box that are supposed to retract back into the lid housing when you lift up on the release lever.
If you can get a flat piece of metal like a slim jim down the sides of the glove box lid, you should be able to push the nib back into the housing, thus releasing the lock hold of the lid.
I just had to do this today when my Hyundai Tiburon glove box closed and refused to open agian.
It seems like the latch has a tendency to malfunction after a while and no longer is able to active the retraction of the nibs on each side.
Mine was retracting only on one side, so I could see that it was kind of "trying" to release but was still locked in place.
I hope this helps some
Good luck!

Where do I find the blower motor control madule on my 2003 trailblazer


Need to take off the plastic kick guard off just below the glove box. Then you can look under the glovebox and you'll see the blower motor and the blower resistor module on the bottom of it. For even better access, open the glove box, and flip it upside down which will expose the connector for the resistor module that needs to be unhooked.

To move the glove box upside down, feel around in the openings just to the left of the glove box. You'll feel a hook like (spring loaded) metal piece that you can push back, that will allow the glove box to fall freely down.

Where is the cabin air filter located on an 07 Hyundai Tiburon?


The cabin filter is located behind the glove box.

Remove the three screws along the bottom edge of the glove box door.

Open the glove box door and remove the three screws along the top edge just inside where the door closes.

Pull the glove box assembly out and you will see the cabin filter cover behind it. It is a (approx.) 1.5"x10" plastic plate that snaps out.

Remove the cabin filter cover and slide the old filter out, noting the orientation. Install the new filter in the same orientation then reassemble the vehicle.

2000 Toyota Corolla VE -- Glove Box Stuck


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.
