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.

1999 cadillac deville glove box won't open


If it is unlocked, the the pin attached to the handle could be broken. There is a small "U" shaped metal piece that is part of the mechanism inside the handle. You have to first pull up the handle as if to open it and slide your finger in towards the top then once you feel it push it down, your finger is replacing the broken pin. This should open it. Hope this helps.

Glove box, LOCK BROKEN IN LOCK POSITION


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.
