Feel behind the glove compartment or remove it and see what the problem is.


I can't feel anything behind the glove compartment....what I can feel, I do not feel anything blocking the closure.


On some cars there is a catch which will allow the glove box to open up all the way so that you can see behind it.

I found instructions on how to remove it to get to air conditioner filter. I will try that tomorrow.


Sounds like the latch needs to be lubricated. Spray a little White Lithium Grease on the latch. HTH. -Jim

I was able to release the glove compartment and found the front of the air conditioner filter box had broken off and was restricting the closure of the glove front. I was able to DUCT tape the piece back into place and replace glove compartment. I think they changed my filter on last service. I will check...and then get a new front filter cover put in. Thanks for all the suggestions and help!
