SOURCE: 1999 olds cutlass glove box removal

you need to remove all the screws on the bottom of the glove box on the outside, then on the inside remove all the screws too. and then pull it out. sometimes some glove boxes have stoppers on the edge of the door inside and you have to pry on them to pull the stoppers in front of the side of the glove box so you can remove it entirely from the dash.

SOURCE: Glove box in dash stuck can not open with key

You likely have something stuck in the latch mechanism. Push in on the cover push/turn button then pull out at the same time.

SOURCE: my glove box valet lock is on, how do I override

Your black ended driver key should open the glove box. The valet key is not made to open it, thats the safty feature in it. There is no overide for the Valet settings, you have to unlock the glove box with Driver (master or black) key and turn the Valet switch off. Also the Valet switch does not engage the glove box lock so over riding the Valet security wouldnt open it even if you could over ride. If the Valet key would unlock it or was easy to overide then it wouldnt be a very good safety feature. Best of luck, hope you can get it opened.

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

Can't open glove box in my 2003 Aztek


I have an 03 Aztek and my latch just broke the trick to getting it open is a screwdriver or a little hook of some sort... Pull the handle back and look up under u will see a metal bar on the right side. get a grip of that and pull/pry a little bit and it will open. Once open there are 2 philips head screws holding it in and that's it

Glove box latch broke close. How to open?


Hi, how are you? From what you are describing the latch on the inside sounds like it has broken and is not releasing. You can try to lay on the floor and look up in the bottom of the back of the glove box there are two tabs one on each side. If you push these tabs inward the bottom of the box should come free and help the top to come free. If you cannot see the tabs or can’t get the tabs pushed in, you are going to have to force it open, you can do this with a flat pry bar, wrap the end with a cloth to protect the paint. The good news is that the glove box latch is pretty cheap to replace.

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.
