    Greasing glovebox hinge/damper

    Does anyone have any suggestions for greasing the glovebox hinge/damper thing?

    Mine has become very slow to open recently.

    Prise the panel off the end of the dash and squirt a smidgen of liquid grease or silicon on the shaft with the glove box open. Work the box up and down gently a few times and it will be fine.
