    Not sure how its happened, my thought is that I use spotify via the ami so the glovebox gets opened and closed a lot. I've blamed the wench anyway. Aswell as her opening the door into a stone wall!!!

    The brake element on the left side dries up & becomes stiffer to open/close & this causes weak areas to snap.

    I may have a glovebox or 2 available, need to check stock.

    Post pics of the damage as I can repair them aswell.

Been fixed for 2.5yeara no issues the box works like brand new. There is a fix for these on a thread just have a search bud
