    Is there no way to lock the glovebox? I keep some valuables in my car from time to time and I'd like to be able to lock it. Why don't they do this?

    Nope, can't be locked. A bit pants I know but it teaches you not to leave anything in your car anyway!

    Coz it's a waste of time, to be honest.
    I had a locking glovebox in a Golf, some thieving Hibees just ripped the dash apart instead (It was parked not far from East end park for an Aberdeen game).
    So, for the sake of some CD's, I'd have been better off leaving the glovebox unlocked.
    I'd only have had a smashed window to contend with then, not a smashed window and a ripped apart dash...

    I know a guy who has a 20 year old micra just for travelling in and out to work and it kept getting broken into by people to steal his radio (probably the only thing of value in the car!)

    After three stolen radios he decided not to bother replacing it. He now parks the car with the glovebox left open, the doors unlocked and a note on the windscreen saying "doors not locked - please do not break window". Since then nothing has happenned to the car. I guess if there's no challenge some car thieves just couldn't be bothered!
