Q: Glove compartment won't unlock

asked by on

The glove compartment won't unlock.

Hi! This issue is a common problem many TSX owners encounter. So common that the Acura dealerships began replacing the glove boxes under warranty claims. The warranty for the glove box replacement will extend up to 50,000 miles. The glove box latch mechanism is known to developed faults internally. The defective glove box latch mechanism is built into the glove box itself therefore it is not serviceable and must be entirely replaced. I recommend that a technician inspect the glove box latch mechanism for broken connections. A properly trained technician will easily be able to diagnose and perform this repair if requested.
