Hello. This problem is easily fixed by adjusting the latch. Since this vehicle is only three years old, the service department at your dealership may be willling to do this repair as a good will jesture. If you are into mechanical repairs yourself, take a close look at the latch and you will see that it can be adjusted by loosening two small screws and moving the latch slightly so that it is more deeply into the lock.

Hi dmbrozovsky

A common fault on X5's. I will go through the easiest fix from the first. Check all of the steps to make sure it never happens again.

1. Make sure the lock is set to open. It could have been locked and won't shut. Sounds too easy but it can happen. Make sure there is nothing in the way of the glove box door, ie. overfilled the glovebox.

2. Check the striker plate of the glove box lock to the rest of the dash board. It could be loose from over-use. Tighten up the screw (two Phillips head screws).

3. Check the lock mechanism itself. With the door open, lock and unlock it. If the pin doesn't move, you will have to open he casing and make sure the pin can be moved by the lock.

4. Spray WD40 on the lock, this will free up any oxidization and ensure the lock moves easier.

Good luck, with these hints you will have a normally working glovebox door from now on. Please take the time to vote for me. Thanks.

    There is not locking mechanism - push button on dash board

    Inside the glove box is a fuse box in the roof of the gbox. Check for a blown fuse. It is not locking due to the electro-magnets being told the right thing to do.

    If no fuse is blown, then you will have to venture behind the push button. It will be missing the switch or the switch is damaged.

The latch of the glove compartment broke. Can't open the compartment


If you look under glove box you will see two to four screws that hold the glove box on. Take out the screws and the glove box will drop down and you can get inside and release latch..then you can get a replacement latch and replace.

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.

HOW TO CHANGE THE IN CABIN FILTER ON A CHRYSLER 200


All of the older answers are incorrect. Open the glove box. Remove everything from the glove box and set it aside. On the right and left sides of the glove box, there are some rubber stoppers. Simply push inward on the sides of the glove box toward the center so that you can open the glove box beyond the point where the rubber stoppers stop it.

After opening the glove box all the way (past the rubber stoppers) look inside, just above the blower unit. There are arrows on the left and right end of a rectangular black cover. Push the release tabs which the arrows point to, and remove the cover. Pull the filter out.

Install the new filter, and put the cover back in place by snapping it on as you found it. Push the sides of the glove box toward the center, and close the glove box. Open it as you normally would, and put your stuff back in the glove box.

cable.
(2) Open the glove box.

(5) Reach through the glove box opening to access and disconnect the blower motor pigtail wire connec-tor from the power module connector receptacle.

Lower Glove Box Won't Close


I fixed this in a 2010 Rav4 by lowering the glovebox all the way and finding that the cover to the cabin air filter had fallen off and was jamming the hinge of the glove box. To lower the glove box, pull the glove box side walls inward until the lock tabs clear the sides of the opening and you can rotate it all the way down. Clear whatever is jamming the hinge and rotate the glove box back into position. Be sure the hinge is pushed all the way forward onto the corresponding pin before closing the glove box, otherwise there will be misalignment. There is also a plastic air piston on the right side of the glove box assembly that damps the movement of the glove box. Be sure the piston assembly is secured into the two corresponding locking pins (one on the glove box, the other on the glove box opening) before closing the glove box.

Already have cabin filter, need to know how to install it.


Remove all of the contents in the glove box. Remove the glove box door support. Open the glove box. Squeeze the sides of the glove box inward, to drop the box door open further. The cabin air filter is in a small rectangular box, behind the glove box.

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.
