How to screw back the glove box screws of a 2001 celica
The two screws that hold the glove box when you open it have come off and now the glove box does not "stop" after opening, it swings all the way down. How do I screw the screws back on? I have tried to push them in the slot, but it didn't work.

with a small flat head screw drive. pull the glove box latch and there will be a goldish small piece of metal behind glove box latch. remove the small gold metal piece ( you will have to break it out) and your glove box will open. the new latch will cost about 25-35 dollars. <!-- from fixya rte -->
Remove the glove box: unscrew 3 screws inside the box (in a row towards the top) and 2 on the outside (one on the bottom right side- open the car door to access it, and one on the bottom left side). Grab the bottom of the box and pull it toward you. It will come off.
Once it's off, flip it over. There are 2 screws that hold the latch housing on the box (you'll find them in the 2 circles that are cut into the plastic). Unscrew them.
Next, flip it back over to the front and stick a small flat screwdriver between the latch housing and the glove box part that it's stuck into. Gently pull the latch and the whole thing should come out.
Pop the new one in, replace the screws, put your glove box back in your car, and you're good to go!
First, take a good look at what you’re doing.
Look on the right side of open glove box and locate a plastic lever. You will see grooves on the end connected to the glove box. The grooved area is the spot to place the thumb in order to press this lever off the glove box when it comes time to do that.
Look up under the glove box. You will see two brass colored screws one on each side of the bottom of the glove box. These screws go up through two square plastic hinges that are attached to the glove box and into the the dash frame.
Okay, with the glove box closed remove the two brass colored screws, and put them aside so you won’t lose them..
Open the glove box and hold the glove box with your left hand and press on the plastic lever (grooved area) located on the right side of the glove box. This lever (the lever already mentioned above) is slotted and will pop off the glove box.
Put the glove box carefully aside.
Look straight in behind the glove box. You will see a rectangular black plastic cover approximately 1.5 inches wide by 8 inches long. On the right and left side are arrows pointing in. Press the arrows and pull out on the cover. This will slide out the tray that holds the filter. Remove old filter and insert the new one, flow arrows pointing down.
Retrieve glove box, hold in place, and attach plastic plastic lever to the right side of the glove box. The reverse of removal.
Next, the two plastic hinges located on the bottom of the glove box fit underneath the dash frame.
While holding the glove box in place (the glove box latch may hold glove box in place while installing screws) re-install the two screws through the plastic hinges into the frame and tighten.
Hope this helps you.
You open the glove box and you will see two black plastic pieces toward the top on either side of the glove box. This is what is holding the glove box up. Get a screw drive and pop these off. the glove box will fall down. Then you will see a white plastic box this is where your filters are...open it and pull both out and replace
Its actually not that bad to change. If you open the glove box and remove the screws then the screws along the bottom of the glove box at the bottom of the dash the box will slide out. Remember to disconnect the light if it has one. Now you will be able to see the underside of the dash. You can see a large black box that has wires and vacuum lines all over. You need to locate a small flat plate with two screws and a plug in the middle. Disconnect the plug and remove the screws. The resistor will come straight out. The back side will look like small coiled up springs of different sizes. Install in reverse.Hope this helps. Good luck. Please re-post with updates. Thanks cj2176.
