    The Shiny Black hinged door below the aircon controls on the dash on my S3 has broken and will now not close, just keeps hinging back up.

    Anyone know if this is an easy repair. I can't figure out what mechanism keeps the door closed as there is no catch visible.

    Cheers

    I have the same problem mate, its a spring thats missing from mine i think.. I took the entire upper centre console off (as i was changing my stereo) and you can get to it from behind there easy enough if you have the replacement parts.. I'm taking the 'im just going to live with it' stance..

    Ive pulled my unit out slightly, so it sort of jams itself closed, it still works perfectly though, so give it a go, could be a quick, cheap and easy fix :)
