I heard you need an all new glovebox cause it's all self-contained. I serviced mine and it seems to be true.

Maybe it's just a cue to be inventive and come up with a "glove box replacement mod"...

It would involve cutting plastic welds and it would never really be the same. I hope someone comes up with an idea, but I'm not cutting mine, it works perfectly.

Default crop gone wrong!

sorry about the pic. anyway we put the latch on bolted the handle on because the whole thing came off and put some foam on the back to reduce vibration. i would have just gotten a new one but then i'd have to get a new carbon fiber kit or cut some to fit myself i guess...

I like how you always voice your opinion about everything you hate(Sarcasm). I have actually been thinking about adding a lift kit, 18 inch rims, mud flaps, and window deflectors just for you. Some people need to learn it takes all kinds, and keep their big mouth shut.

I'm editing to add the word prick, I think it's apt
