Question about 2003 Volvo XC90
I am interested whether there is any way to open the glove box. Yesterday I put the key in the lock, turned it and the lock's middle part came out with the key. It doesn't seem broken the peace itself, but I cannot open the glove box. I have all my documents and GPS in it...
Can You help, please?
Get it fixed under warranty. My 04 and your 06 have the same glove box. The right hinge was rattling around in mine and they replaced it no problem. Not worth trying to fix yourself :)

The most common cause is something inside the glove box jammed in the latch. Push glove box door release , and GENTLY insert a flat putty knife, plastic knife, or similar type tool in the groove of door, GENTLY try to pry open the door. U will probably (hopefully) find a napkin, map, or glove (does anybody actually put gloves in the glove box?) jammed in the inside latch. Let me know how u make out.

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.

What happens is the door handle linkage breaks and you cannot open the door. You can get it open with a very thin metal strip, by jimmying the latch, but it is really hard to do. I also used to drill a hole in the door to get them open, then replace the door.
