My son has a 2007 a3 2.0 170bhp tdi slines he went into the glove box and it broke, been looking but cant seem a way to fix it, or if they sell replacement hinges been on ebay seems you have to buy the joblot, so just looking for some help please thanks.
Had one hinge on A4 B7 glove box broken.
With the blow torch, I've bend old alankey and with previously drilled in hole, glued it in (short part on the hinge and longer part of it, went through to the door of the box). Filled gaps with glue to reinforce and it was good as new.
If you're DIY person, you can find a way to fix it and reinforce it.
If not, just get the replacement second hand one from eBay.
I would recommend to look into glove box damper also.
Those hinges also break due to pulling the door down or up, as the damper doesn't allow to open freely.
Thanks all for your help my son has got back to me found this on ebay the only problem is that the glovebox is from a 2008/2012 A3 8P would anybody have a clue if this would fit a 2007 thanks for all your help. He said that this is could be the part no 8p2857035j6ps
