    Just the damper and pin, not the glovebox.

    Did this a few months ago cost about£12 but check that it works OK cos the first work stiffened up so I had to take it off and get another ,This one only just works after I used WD40 onit

    I got quoted about £19! I said no, and pinched the one out of my dads B6 before he sold it :)

    I put WD40 on mine and after a while it still stiffens up found putting a small hole in the top of the damper makes it work a treat!

    A silicon spray will last longer than WD40. I trimmed a small amount from the rubber ring inside the damper, this helps it slide up and down with less resistance.

    If someone has bought one of these glovebox dampers, can they post where from, and how much as really want to order one.

    Thanks

    sorry to bump this ..

    just fixed mine .. sort of .. but can the pins be bought by themselves? don't need a dampener just the pin!

    And how do i loosen off the resistance so the glovebox opens freely?

    I had to take the glove box out of my b7 because the hinge snapped, so I took my damper off whilst it was all out. You should be able to remove the damper with the glove box in situ, but if not its only 5 bolts holding the glove box in (3 inside at the top and 2 underneath). Only takes 5 mins to get out and you'll need an 8mm socket.

    I used wd40 inside my damper and shaved the o ring. If you go down this route, Don't put too much wd40 inside it or it will make a weird noise when the rod moves. The noise went away after a bit though

    I'll try and have a look in the garage tomorrow if I can find what my dad used to replace the pin and let you know the sizes.

    The part number for the pin is here:

    8E0880802

    It's always worth looking in the Part Number Sticky before asking for part numbers, I've spent quite a lot of time with useful user contributions making that into a hopefully worthwhile resource.

    To ease up the damper movement have a read of this:
