Look in the hole and you should see an arm (wire or plastic) coming threw a slot in the door. Push it in and the door will open. If it is plastic and has disintegrated, then you will have to have an "L" shaped piece of steel to push the lever. the steal in wiper blades work get for this. Easy to bend, and you can find them at any auto parts store in the trash can.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Removing Door Panel for MPV with door Stuck

I think the 04 should be very similar to the 03. Here is my fix for the 03

I just fixed this same problem. It happened to me 3 different times in a month so I got good at it. Before you dive into removing your door try this. Pull the door handle and release it letting it snap back several times. The problem is a half open door latch that won't let the door unlock. Do this as aggressively as you can to attempt to get the latch to return to its original position. Check the door lock between flicks.

Ok, if that didn't work, here is how to remove the door.
1. Remove the screw behind the door latch, you will have to pop the plastic cover off first.
2. Remove the rubber insert in the door handle
3. Remove the screw that is now visible
4. Now remove the window/lock control module, the back is free but the front has a plastic lip so lift the back up and pull towards the back of the van.
5. Remove the clips that attach to the lock and to the window controls (these can be a pain)
5. (Optional) Remove the bracket that held the window/lock control module

At this point your door is basically free, it is only held in place with plastic clips that can be easily forced off. If your door were open you would simple pull the bottom of the door out (hinged at the window) and lift it off. But since we can't pull because the door is closed we have to force it out.

From here it is pretty simple. Move the seat all the way back and tip the seat way back. Lift the door panel straight up. You will be breaking 2 plastic clips from the rear part but once you do it just pulls out. This is not that easy because the space is limited but just keep pulling and force the rear end of the door panel past the b-pillar. Once you do this it is free.

Have fun and try to keep the black gook from getting everywhere.

Oh, to fix the door lock just oil/grease it and manually move the mechanism several times.

The glovebox door on my 2001 golf is stuck in the closed position and the handle is broken. How do i open it


From memory there is a row of t20 screws on the inside of the glove box that need to be removed to allow the box out. I think the only way is to break the handle, but as far as I can remember the lock and catch are available to order separately from vw.

1990 Honda Accord CB. When I shut the door I locked it at the same time. The door is now stuck locked but the popper is in the unlocked position. So it thinks it is unlocked when it actually isn't. Then...


You'll have to use a screwdriver. Stick it inside the locked latch on the door itself, the hole that holds it closed against the car body, then pry on it while at the same time pulling the door handle up to open it. The lock piece should swing open and your door should close and open normally again.

Replacing the car battery of a 2001 chrysler concorde


The official way is to jack up the passenger side, remove the wheel and there is an access panel there. Remove the panel and slide the batterry into the wheelwell. Easy !! (What a pain)

After I did that once, I tried it from the top of the car. The air cleaner box is held into the side of the r by two rubber "prongs", but secured at the side nearest the engine with a third "prong" to a metal base that is bolted to the chassis. You can undo the bolt with a long extension socket, or you can try and pry the "prong" off the base.

You will also need to unscrew the screw clip that holds the main filter box top to the resyt of the air intake system
