Question about 1994 Volvo 850

My 94 850 sedan's glove compartment will not open. It is not locked. I have important papers in there and had to get to them. After using a screw driver to pry it open it makes a loud clicking noise. I was never able to open the glove compartment.

    I have the same problem, although my vehicle is a 1995 850 sedan. Other than using a hacksaw ... How can I get the compartment door to open?

    If it is like my 960 the latch and lock are on the left side. The latch rotates a shaft and the actual catch is in the center. Does the latch rotate the shaft?

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.

How to change cabin filter


Not all cars have a cabin filter, but most are located behind your glove compartment. Open glove box and remove the two pins on the sides so the compartment opens wider and you should see a black plastic door with a clip to keep on. Unclip and pull it out and replace. Some cars the cabin is located under the hood on passenger side by the wiper. You have to remove the black plastic by a screw driver or socket and youll see the filter housing under it if its there

Broken handle to glove box in my Galant


This happened in my '01 galant as well. If you take a peek under where the handle used to be, there's a little square nook with a spring and a little plastic tab. take a key and stick it right above the tab and press down, and the glove compartment should just pop right open. If it doesn't work, then it's probably just locked. Just unlock the door and try it again.

Where is the cabin air filter located at and how do i get to it.


It will either be behind your glove box, or will be located under your hood by the firewall.

    Behind the Glove Compartment
  1. Open the glove compartment and remove all the items from inside of it.
  2. Remove the glove compartment assembly retainer screws with a Phillips head screwdriver. Refer to the repair manual for your specific year and model series BMW for the exact location of the screws or carefully look around the perimeter of the interior glove box assembly to locate the screws.
  3. Locate the lower trim panel retaining screws behind the glove box assembly. Remove the screws with a Phillips head screwdriver and then remove the panel.
  4. Remove the foot-well air duct.
  5. Loosen the retaining screws of the control module box to all you to lower it down.
  6. Turn the cabin air filter panel retaining knob counterclockwise to open the panel. Pull the filter removal tab outward to remove the filter.
  7. Use a shop vac to clean out any noticeable debris from the cabin air filter housing interior.
  8. Insert the new filter and reverse the order to reassemble the foot-well air duct, the trim panel and the glove compartment assembly.
  9. Under the Hood
  10. Open the hood and locate the cabin air filter housing. The housing is located near the cowling on the top section of the firewall. Some models place the housing in the middle of the cowling, on both sides--left and right--of the cowling or on the passenger side cowling. Removal of the cowling and placing the windshield wipers in the upward position may also be required on certain models. Some 7-Series BMWs place the filter housings on both the left and right side undercarriage of the hood.
  11. Release the cabin air filter duct clamp. This can either be released by unclipping the air filter duct by pressing a retaining lock with your fingers or using a flathead screwdriver to pry off a retaining rod.
  12. Lift the cover upward--or downward on hood-installed 7-Series BMWs--to reveal the cabin air filter.
  13. Remove the cabin air filter from the air duct. Vacuum the air duct with a shop vac.
  14. Insert the new cabin air filter(s) and reassemble.
