Gently pry around the cover with a flat tip screwdriver until you can feel where it is jammed. Then work that area until it opens. There is probably a piece of plastic, paper or cloth stuck there.

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.

2005 slk350 glove box is locked. how do you open it.


This is a common problem with these cars, the glove box has a solenoid that locks and unlocks it, this is the problem, you will need to lock and unlock the doors with the door button not fob, you will need to do this several times until the glove box unlocks.

This sounds like yours is on the way out but if you lock and unlock a few times you should be able to get it to unlock, you may have to do this a few times, i know its time consuming but the lock will unlock.

When you get the glove box open, there are two reasons for this problem, first it may just need a little wd40 sprayed on the latch and arm, or the solenoid is bad.

The way to figure this out is with the box open spray solenoid arm and latch and then hit the lock and unlock a few times as you watch to see it move, again you may need to hit lock and unlock a few time to get it moving, once moving you will see the movement and then spray a little more, If the WD40 works then the latch will move with door locks but if you still get get the latch to move then you will need to replace the solenoid.
The last thing may be a relay, there is a relay that controls the latch but most times its latch or wd40 being the problem.

There are TSB"s on this problem and if you bought this car from the dealer i would see if they would repair it at no cost to you, its worth a try.

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!

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.
