I think my 6 year old had something to do with this, but I'll never know (and he's not admitting to anything)

Go to open the glove box and nothing. Button just pushes in. No resistance felt. Figured I locked it for some reason. Nope! Didn't lock it.

Finally found some time and a t-20 and worked my way up from the bottom and removed it. The latch and cable on the glove box seems fine. That only leaves the button and a broken piece of plastic that I found somewhere along the way. (along with two 12volt power outlets I didn't know about!)

Anyone ever have to replace the button/cable mechanism? Any tips or tricks?

This weekends project is to troubleshoot this and replace the rear lid dampers.

thankyou.gifLoren for the DIY on the dampers.

The part was faulty from its manufacturer so you can get it from any dealer for less than $20. You can use a small flat bladed screwdriver to move the catch to open it. its about an hours work to replace it

the trim strip above the glovebox just levers off from its spring clips the screws are under it
