2002 Jeep liberty handle on glove compartment broke how do I open it

If the handle broke off completely, then you should be able to see what the handle pushed on or pulled on to open it, then you might be able to push on the latch mechanism with a screwdriver or pull what's left of the handle piece with a pair of needle nose pliers

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.

The battery light comes on and off. Got a new battery and it is still doing it. Also the handle on the glove compartment broke off and can not open it to get our saturn book. 2003 Saturn VUE

When the battery light is on it usually indicates the alternator (generator) is not charging. Take the truck to auto Zone and the can check it for you and there will probably not be a charge.

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.

The glove compartment latch on my 1995 SL1 is broken and now I can't open it. You can pull on the latch and it moves but does not release. How do I open it without tearing up the dash?

you can open it by manipulating the plastic handle a bit.You will have to get a little rough with it to get it to open but it will.2 phillips screws hold it to the glove box door when you get to it.
