    Am I right in thinking that this isn't repairable? I've changed the hinge on the left before, but it seems more of a catastrophic failure than that.

    Here's a pic...

    Mine came apart worse that that. I put a screw in, araldite round the screw head so it became a solid block. Then a L Bracket for extra safety. All good now.

    Thanks guys. Can;t believe I didn't search. How many times do I come on this forum and see a pist and think "Search function"... And here I am doing exactly the same. Thanks a lot!

    Did this today, all seemed to go well, though now the glovebox doesn't quite close properly, needs a good slam. I'm thinking I have not quite got the shape of the bracket right and it's pushing the door silly out of alignment or something.
