From what I can tell, it looks like u have to remove the whole glovebox door which entails removing the lower dash panel on the passenger side.. That should give u access to screws to remove glovebox door. Don't tug on the door when u remove screw's, just enough space to get ur hand or something else up inside to unlatch.. If u need further info, let me know

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

Glove box wont latch

If the glove box was closed wrong than the latch that keeps the glove box shut will close on itself. If you take a pen or a screwdriver and put little pressure on it and try the handle again it should open. if thats not the case than replace the handle, the locking mechanism with in the handle or the spring broke or came apart.

The lock mechanism on the glove box broke. I purchased a new assembly but I need to remove the cylinder from the old assembly and put it in the new one and reinstall on the glove box

it is conceivable to remove the screws under the glove box assembly to help gain access to the lock mech. If this is not possible you might need to drill the lock. I am assuming you r not able to open the box. I f you are able to open it then replacing it is a breeze.

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.

If the glove box is anything like mine it is a modular piece assembled with screws.... let them break the handle.. get a replacement first from a junk dealer and have the broken part swapped out. Its like a seat belt catch in my 97 deville. The glove box in mine flopped open and the catch had broken and fell down the door of the glovebox itself. The whole door is assembled with philips screws and should be easily removed and a new latch put in.. whoever does it should not cost more than 50.00 in labor MAYBE unless you have a friend that would do it for a beer. I saw a complete glove box on ebay for 40.00 shipping ontop of that .. i saw the latch for 20.00 +shipping.
