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 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: Glove compartment stuck

I just opened my friend's stuck Toyota Corolla glove compartment by
pushing in on the bottom right front with my foot while pulling the latch and giggling it. The latch turned out to be broken. Good luck.

SOURCE: broken handle to glove box in my Galant

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.

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.

I have a canvas pencil case jammed in the latch of my glove box and cant open my glove box, how do i get it open?

You can use something thin and flexible to poke in the glove compartment on either side of the latch and, with luck, dislodge the pencil case and allow the compartment to be opened

GMC Sierra 1500 Glove box latch is broken and will not open

Unfortunately, you cannot just by the latch assy from the dealer. They only carry the complete glove box assy. (cost $285). The best fix if you are near a truck salvage yard is to get one from a wrecked vehicle. I just fixed mine for $32.00 including tax. To remove the glove box, you will need to remove 3ea 7mm screws that hold the hinge to the dash. And there are 2ea alum pop rivets that you will need to drill out (I used a 3/8 drill bit). Then slide the assy to the left to free the tab on the right side. Reverse procedure to install.

The glove compartment latch on my 1995 SL1 is broken and now I can't open it. You can pull on the latch and it moves but does not release. How do I open it without tearing up the dash?

you can open it by manipulating the plastic handle a bit.You will have to get a little rough with it to get it to open but it will.2 phillips screws hold it to the glove box door when you get to it.
