: glovebox door broke.

02-28-13, 10:22 AM
unfortuantely whomever designed this car was a puzzle master and it impossible to remove the hinge pins to open the bottom of the door. the latch broke on mine and i cant figure out how it opened before, can someone/anyone take a pic of the door open and the clasp that holds it shut AND the latch in the actual door. i dont wanan take it to the dealer, but might have to on this one. or completely break the door and get a new one (seems like if the steering wheel is out or production, i would only imagine the door would be even lesser demand, lol) thanks in advance

Boomys10, I do recommend visiting your dealer for service, and please let me know if you would like any assistance scheduling an appointment or locating the dealers in your area. I'm available via email at Katie_Lucille@gmexpert.com or via private message.

I realize you may only be exclusively seeking DIY input from other owners, in which case I hope the community chimes in soon with feedback for you!

i wouldnt concerned about it, but the dealer is CRAZY EXPENSIVE and takes forever to get anthing done. the only V certed dealer i have around here takes 2hrs for an oil change. dont even want to know who long this would take. i really just need the diagram of how it works and i can figure it out from there. can you send that to me Katie? id love you forever :)

wouldnt any STS have the same door---you can search junk yards on line thru places like pull apart to find a lot with a wrecked STS

the issue is i cant get the door OPEN to remove it. sts lc34 was kind enough to send me some pix and i pretty quickly realized im slightly screwed. lol, plus i dont believe the sts have the leather wrapping. that needs to remain. cant have plastic with the rest leather.
