Has my entire glove box had it?

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...

should be able to fix it, Mine snapped in the same place so i bent an L bracket, painted it black and screwed it on. I'll get you a pic tonight

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!

(Great write-up James!)

Thanks for that alpesh, looks like a fairly tidy fix.

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.
