    HELP Needed - Glove Box Broken

    Ok, so I just picked up my S4 - what a car....

    However, everything is ok with the exception of a broken glove box

    The hinge appears to have snapped, and glued back on but broke again...

    Does anybody know if these are fairly straight forward to change and anybody got any removal / fitting instructions???

    Cheers

    Its a common thing, here you go:

    Glovebox Hinge Repair

    I've been told in the past that my repair "Didn't look the best" but it's held for a long time, and unless you drive about with the glovebox open I think it's just fine. Different people have done it in different ways, but that was my take on it anyway.

    hi guys

    sorry but i have read this in another thread but i also have a glovebox problem, however, i can open mine by removing panel on side, so i am guessing its the latch??? i read the detailed guide on how to re-inforce this with an aluminium strip but thats way beyond my capabilities methinks. so any advice on what fix i can do thats pretty easy for a not so handy diy person, either using glue or maybe can i just replace the latch??

    any ideas appreciated.

    cheers.

    I have 2 wires running right through the hinge,any ideas what they are,I fear if i screw a bracket on i'll damage the wire.
    It plugs in to the 'damper' behind where the lamp plugs in.
