SOURCE: Mitsubishi Galant 2000 Glove Box Lock

First off you will need your key to the lock and a 1/8" flat blade screw driver.  Notice that your lock only turns 1/4 rotation, after doing this procedure you will be able to turn the lock an extra 1/4 turn counter clock-wise (when viewed from the front of the latch).

Turn the lock so it is vertical (perpendicular to the latch itself (counter clock-wise)).  Turn the latch around so you can view the back and the lock is to your left.  Above the lock there is a slot that you can put your screw driver into (not the indention in the metal).  You need to insert your screw driver and listen very closely, you should hear your screw driver hitting the metal latch.  Once you push the latch down with your screw driver, turn the lock another 1/4 turn with your key from the front (counter clock-wise looking from the front).

Once the lock has been turn a full 1/2 turn, you should be able to push the lock out from the back of the latch.

To put the lock in the new latch, you have to have your key in the lock.  Put the lock in the latch with the one pesky keep latch facing the handle used to open the glove compartment.  Once the lock is in the new latch, turn clock-wise until you can't anymore (1/2 turn).

You're done my friend!

SOURCE: glove box latch broken

The latch is sold seperately. Call your local dealer with the last 9 of you vin number to get the right color. Most dealers sell at the same MSRP price as all the others in town. I know cause I sell these all the time at my Chrysler dealership.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: glove box latch is broken cant open it want to

Guess what? Volkwagen makes you buy the entire glove box assembly, including lock and door in gray, black or beige for around $145. No way to fix the latch because it is encased in sealedand glued plastic. Good luck! Mine just broke, also.

SOURCE: need replacement latch glove box?

Junk yard will be the cheapest.

I don't think you'll be able to get it through an auto part store because most of these parts are not universally designed. All manufacturers make slight variations so it's hard to find an exact part.

The dealership will definitely have this part, but the price may or may not be pricey.

2005 slk350 glove box is locked. how do you open it.


This is a common problem with these cars, the glove box has a solenoid that locks and unlocks it, this is the problem, you will need to lock and unlock the doors with the door button not fob, you will need to do this several times until the glove box unlocks.

This sounds like yours is on the way out but if you lock and unlock a few times you should be able to get it to unlock, you may have to do this a few times, i know its time consuming but the lock will unlock.

When you get the glove box open, there are two reasons for this problem, first it may just need a little wd40 sprayed on the latch and arm, or the solenoid is bad.

The way to figure this out is with the box open spray solenoid arm and latch and then hit the lock and unlock a few times as you watch to see it move, again you may need to hit lock and unlock a few time to get it moving, once moving you will see the movement and then spray a little more, If the WD40 works then the latch will move with door locks but if you still get get the latch to move then you will need to replace the solenoid.
The last thing may be a relay, there is a relay that controls the latch but most times its latch or wd40 being the problem.

There are TSB"s on this problem and if you bought this car from the dealer i would see if they would repair it at no cost to you, its worth a try.

The lache on my drunk of my Mitsubishi 2004 spyder is jammed and wont lock and to let trunk close and b locked and attach


If you can remove the panel on the back door where the lock mechanism is, you should see a small rod with a bend in the end of it. You want to try to get the hook end of the rod into the hole on the lock portion of latch, should be on the face of the door.
