PostSubject: Broken glove box latch, help   4th February 2014, 16:39

Hi guys.

I was trying to fix my glove box earlier which kept opening over every bump! Very annoying. I was trying to see if I could pry the handle a little so it closed better now the latch has broken completely.

Any advice? I have an R50 2003 Cooper.

Alex.

Mine broke when I "overloaded" it by putting in a hankie and some throat sweets. I could not open it and had my teaching aids in it. I took it to Cooper Croydon and said "my glove box is broken", they took it into the workshop and came out and said "your glovebox is broken". My diagnosis to myself was free their's was £138 ...... I don't often "go" but on this occasion I did. Eventually it was costed as £87 for the glove-box, £28 for the lock and £50 labour plus VAT. I know I should have gone somewhere else, not always that easy. In between they unlocked it by breaking the lock and bandaging it with duck tape. That fell off before I left the forecourt. That was in November 2011.
