    Hi, my glove box handle has snapped and is now permanently locked (handle is still in place but looks like the hinge has cracked) ? Has this happened to anyone or does any one have any idea as to price ? Any help or advice is appreciated - thanks in advance

    Happened to me last year, I had to use a thin screw driver to get in behind the lever.

    Think I paid about £22 for new one off the stealers then its a case of popping your Lock out of the old one and fitting into the new one. 10 min Job if that.:meeting:

    ok managed to get glovebox open via the side panel:icon_thumright: but how the hell do you remove the latch? need to buy another so when I'm at the dealers for service I'll buy one then. But if anyone knows how to remove latch could you tell me:think:

    You have to remove the glove box. Once removed you will see a torx screw on the right hand edge. Remove this and the handle will come out.
