    A3 Glove compartment Problem

    Wonder if anyone has a solution for this?

    When I open my A3 glove compartment, it used to come down slowly. But now it just come down quickly giving it a cheap feel. Can I fix this myself?? Please help.

    Thanks,

    Pom

    Hi if you remove the plastic cover at the end of the dash board (left handside) you will see the glove box damper you might be lucky and find that the small plastic pin that holds it to the glovebox lid has fallen out if not then you will find that the lid its self is broken and needs to be replaced I would advise that you also replace the damper as this is the cause of the broken lid.
