Default Broken Glove Box

One of the clips on my glove box broke and apparently I need a new one. Is this a common problem? Does anyone know a good place to get a cheap glovebox?

Call your local German car salvage yard. Should be available and inexpensive...

Default I have the same problem!

my glove box broke 2 months after buying my car. I talked to VW dealerships and they say it cost $319 dollars for a new one since you cant just buy the clip it really sucks... im waiting off on buying a new one because of the price but hopefully i can find a used one or i will just pay full price and buy a new one


i guess its not my priority cuz first i need a DV valve or whatever fixes my stunted acceleration lol

Definitely a common problem. I also looked around for quite some time thinking you had to buy a whole new glove box. Turns out you can actually buy just the glove door for cheaper. I think the cost was about $60-$80, but not sure since I didn't buy the part. Anyways, you'd still have to take out the glove box in order to install the door. It's a cheaper alternative. Good luck.

The handle broke off my glove box and I can't get it open.

Any tips on opening it without prying it open and breaking the latch?

Mine is the same way. There are two levers inside the hole, you can use your fingers to push those down and the door will open.

Question More info please

I have the same problem. Broken glove box latch. I got another door from online salvage place for $50.00 plus $15.00 shipping.
Now, I need to know how to remove the glove box and install the thing. Can anyone provide me with a step by step. The guy I bought my beetle from broke the door to begin with trying to fix the latch he also broke. I don't want to repeat the problem or compound it by breaking something else.

Thank you in advance

I think I have a DIY, let me look! I saved it because I have to do mine, one of these days.

Here are the forum links I have:
Need A Little Help!
Glove box door removal ?

I believe glove box door R&R is contained within the DIY
Blend Door DIY

I'll have a look at my Bentley this evening and see what it has.
