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.

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

Removing the cabin air filter on a 2001 mitsubishi galant

Open the glove box and empty the contents. gently push the glove box to the left and slide the stop toward you. Now slide the box to the right to get the left stop unhooked. Letting the glove box hang, look at the long thin plate on the fan shroud and undo the two screws holding it in. Now you can slide the cabin filter tray out of the fan shroud and replace the paper element. If you look at the fan shroud and see the rectangular slot but there are no screws in it , the cabin air filter has not been installed in your model. The rectangle can be cut out with an Exacto knife and the cabin air filter can be installed in the slot. You can purchase the cabin air filter tray, cabin air filter, and mounting screws at the Misubishi dealer. I purchased one out of an Eclipse at a salvage yard for $5 , washed it, and installed a new $10 dollar aftermarket paper element. I no longer have dust on my dash and it only cost $15.

Ac/heater problem

The blower resister is burned out. This is located in the ductwork behind the glove compartment. You need to get a new resistor, then remove the glove compartment box. All you need to fix the problem is a box end wrench. A 10-mm wrench will do.

However, check the blower motor fuse first, this may also be bad.
