    Removing the glovebox

    I know there are about 6 - 8 bolts but what do I need to remove them? My car isn't here so I can't go out and look. Also I have the CD changer in there, how easy is it to take it out and re install?

    08 B7 Avant.

    Thank you.

    Morning shorty, changer is removed with 2 radio key holes at the bottom, slides out & disconnect at rear, refit in reverse with no keys

    Glovebox has about 6 x 8mm hex headed bolts to remove, 1 is hidden behind the changer so remove this 1st.

    What's the crack, problems?

    So I need radio keys?

    I am fitting the cooling pipe from the aircon to cool the glovebox, maybe do it this weekend if I get chance, or manage to collect the bits from Listers.

    Shorty? Beats being called Tea *****

    Yesh you do to release the side clips matey, also the cooling pipe sucks arse, had it on our S4 B6 & you need the specific glovebox with fridge area to make it even remotely effective or do you have other ideas like cooling firearms lol.

    I need to keep my Epipen cooler, it lives in the glovebox. If it gets too hot it affects it. Had to replace three this year so far. The cost so far equals the parts I need so for me its a worthwhile mod even if it only cools it by a few degrees.
    I will gets some radio keys when (if) I get to Listers today.

    Ah yes fairly important then, but you realise aircon has to be on at all times to maintain cooling effect, sorry if sucking eggs here, but its not a separate system, I personally would of suggested a boot cooler box via 12v socket.

    Problem with that is when you do have heat up, would it affect the item even more with the hose fitted as it would be directly on the item in question, whereas before it may have been shielded by heat or are we talking even in the coldest of winters you have it on freezing lol.

    I have it on cold most of the time, rarely gets set above 21° even in winter. On a previous post about this mod it was said that the pipe take off is from the A/C matrix and is always cold as its before the heater matrix.

    If I get it fitted over the weekend I will let you know if it works or not.
    Parts collected and they were kind enough to give me a couple of sets of radio keys.

    Hi,
    Having recently fitted the chilled glove box option on my B7 2006, I can confirm that it is always cool as long as the A/C is running regardless of temp settings.
    Really simple to do took me about an hour, that was to fit the chilled glove box lining as well.

    Airbag light is staying on. Dis says passenger airbag on, but light remains lit. Light on buttons under the central air vents isn't on.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks Nige, I was hoping it was something simple.
    I will have to put up with it for a while until I can get someone to shift it.
