Glove box door won't open for a 2003 chevy venture


Hi David:
I think most of the time something is jamming the latch rather than a part actually breaking.
Patience and gentle at first to try to avoid damaging anything.
Try pushing the door towards the closed position while trying to move the latch activating device. If it moves like it should, then try to pull the door open. If it won't move, try to figure out how the mechanism works (looking at another similar vehicle can help) and then see if there is a way to trip the latch mechanism.

Glove box latch broke. How do I get it open?


Gently pry around the cover with a flat tip screwdriver until you can feel where it is jammed. Then work that area until it opens. There is probably a piece of plastic, paper or cloth stuck there.

2000 XK8 I locked the glovebox and now it won't open . any ideas


Welcome to Fixya

The car might be stucked in Valet mode. Use the black key that you have to open the trunk, it overrides the Valet Mode. The key goes in a hole that is between the X and the K on the emblem on the rear of the car.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Slk 500-glove box wont open


It sounds like something got in the way of the latch when you closed it after putting your stuff in there. Take a screw driver and while gently prying on the door turn the latch at the same time. Once it opens and there wasn't anything jamming it then WD 40 time. Let me know how it turns out. Raz

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.

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.
