Glovebox Catch - 07/03/15

This is a REALLY simple fix! Occasionally my glovebox would drop if I hit a pothole or other lump in the road. The impact and subsequent jolt to the car caused the glovebox to drop open a couple of times.

Thankfully the fix is so easy even the most ardent non-DIYer can solve it!

Annoying glovebox lid that opens when you hit a bump. The catch is at the top...where else?

Looking closer, you can see the catch is held on with two large posi-headed self tappers.

Loosen the screws and lower the catch a little. This should be just enough to still permit the catch to engage but also to stop it opening at the slightest provocation.
