Q: Problems with glove compartment.

asked by on

My glove compartment will not open.

Sometimes if too many items were stored in the glovebox before it was closed last something could be jammed in between the latch mechanism. It is also possible that the glovebox was locked and the lock was broken in the process preventing it from being unlocked or opened. Most glove boxes are also screwed down to the dash on the bottom side where the hinge is for the glovebox to open. I would recommend having a technician come to unscrew the bottom of your glovebox door and see if they can release the latch for it to open. If any parts are faulty have them ordered at this time so your glovebox will perform its intended purpose.
