How to Switch Your Busted Glove Box Latch

Everyone keeps important stuff in the glove box-car documents, driver's license, wallet, and other valuables. If you've got a broken glove box latch, you won't be able to get any of these the moment you need them. Lucky for you, you've got this guide to show how to replace the damaged latch and restore convenient access to your glove box.

Difficulty level: Easy

Things that you'll need:

  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Philips head screwdriver
  • Glove box latch replacement

Step 1: Some vehicles require removal of the glove compartment by removing the light wiring around it together with the screws or bolts that hold it in place. Other vehicles, however, do not require this step.

Step 2: Take out the retainer that holds the glove box latch in place using the screwdrivers. Press the end of the screwdriver against one of the open ends of the latch. Make sure all screws are accounted for to avoid hassle during installation.

Step 3: Remove the lock cylinder (if any). You can skip this step if your latch has a different design. Some designs only require removing the damaged latch's screws and sliding it off the lid.

Step 4: Install the lock cylinder into the new glove box latch. Before attaching it, clean and lubricate the latch to ensure that the lock cylinder fits quickly. Again, you can skip this step if your glove box latch doesn't have a lock cylinder.

Step 5: Get your glove box latch replacement and install it in place of the old one. Mount it carefully and secure it using the retainers and screws you removed.

Step 6: Test out the new latch by opening and closing the glove box. You can also insert your key into the slot to check if the lock cylinder was installed properly.
