SOURCE: Glove box combination lost

It can be pretty easy to do.
You'll need a bright flash light and a small flat head screw driver.
Turn on your flash light and shine it directly onto the dials, take your small screw driver and push the dial to one side or the other, usally push it to the left. 
Yes, you won't have a lot of room to move it, but you should have just enough to see a line, or a groove. If you don't see a groove turn the dial to another number until you are able to see a line, or groove.
When you see a groove you are on the correct number, then do the same to the other ones, then push the button to open it up.
Example. (0)(0)(0)     (0)(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(3)-
Good luck.

SOURCE: I bought a 92 grand prix and it has a combination

The only thing I can say is ask the people you bought it from. If they don't know, then the only thing you can really do is pry it open.

Thankfully when I bought mine, the guy who sold it to me knew the combination.

Where is the 1996 Volvo blower motor resistor located?


It is in the dash board behind the glove compartment and inside the ventilation duct. It is held in by one screw and has a flat plug going into it. To access it, removed the glove compartment housing and the panel beneath the glove box. Then remove the SRS air back plate which has 3 nuts holding it on. The you will be able to see the blower motor and resistor. The dash board comes apart with a torx bit, I forget the size.

How to change cabin filter 2011 Lacrosse


I just changed mine yesterday and these tips listed above were unfortunately incorrect.

Step 1 - Open the passenger door
There is a panel that has no screws on the flatside of the dashboard which faces against the closed door at the jam side. Use a body tool and pry the panel carefully exposing the inside area of the glovebox. If possible dont do this in cold weather because the tabs are plastic. Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab.

Step 2 - Open the glove box. Remove the 3 hex screws on the top interior row of the glove box.

Step 3 - At the right and left corners of the bottom of the glove box remove the two front facing screws on the lower hinge.

Step 4- At the very bottom parallel to the floor there are two more hex screws remove those (they hold the plastic vent in place underneath the glove box. Pull the vent downward to release the tabs.
IMPORTANT: Dont forget to go back to step 1 and pull the small tab from the slot in the dashboard cover area ( Inside the panel you will see one small tab that the glove box has a 1/4 plastic clip seated in the tab)

Step 5 - Pull down on the glove box to release the clips.

Step 6 - You will see a black box inside. There are three tabs (right, top, and left) pull them individually to remove the front facing cover. Inside you will see the air filter. Remove and have airflow arrow pointed downward.

Reverse steps to reinstall. Be sure to line up the clips before pressing them back in place. Do not force them!

Good luck. I hope this helps. I did mine on the first attempt with no issues in about 10 minutes (I'm not a mechanic).

What causes a clicking sound when the turn signal is not turned on


Likely a bad combination switch. If you jiggle the turn signal arm lightly and you hear clicking coming from the glove box area, then you need new combination switch.

How do you remove the glove box on a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee?


I forget when they changed body styles, but if your is still a WJ body, you pull the glove box out halfway, the reach under the dash lip, there are a couple of rubber bits that you hold back and the box will pivot the rest of the way out.

How do I change the combination code for the glove box if there is not a way how would I find out what the combination is


I assume you know the current combination and can open it. To set the combination to a number code of your choice you must first remove the red plastic guard over the yellow tab next to the combination dials. Push the glove box release lever to the right to open the glove box. To change the combination:
1. With the glovebox open, hold the release to the right and slide the yellow tab up. This locks the release open and permits you to reset the code.
2.After resetting the code, write it down in case you forget it.
3. Slide the yellow tab down and the release will return to the closed position.
4. Close the glove box and move the dials off the code you set to lock it.
This is all from the 89 Pontiac Owners Manual. Good luck, hope it works.

1998 GMC Jimmy with "turn signal" clicking behind glove box


I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy SLT with same exact problem. I just determined exactly what it is today.
Here is what you should do:

1) Open glove box

2) Notice the u-shape mechanism that prevents the glove box from folding all the way down. (located near top left corner of OPEN glove box

3) Empty contents of glove box and then push up on U-shape and open glove box so that it hangs freely

4) Notice the wiring harness with a bolt in middle of it (located behind glove box)

5) To the right of the wiring harness is a small black box with a zip tie over it. This is the source of your problem. Just slide the zip tie to the right so that the box can then be pulled out.

This is your combination flasher for turn and hazard signals. My signals still worked while this annoying little thing kept clicking. The model # is GM11516051. You can find one on e-bay for at least 1/2 the price of the dealer's.
