You are watching: Toyota corolla glove box broken latch

Hello everyone!
2001 Corolla S 5-Speed - it won"t Die!
Thanks, Chris. I"d really appreciate those pictures. As I mentioned earlier, I took apart the whole thing, but either there"s one last screw that I can"t see that"s still holding the whole panel in place, or the panel is hanging off the latch from the glovebox itself. I get the feeling it"s the later. Anyway, I"m hoping that if I see a picture of the latch, I might figure out how to pop it open from the back.

O.K., this doesn"t show exactly what I want, but this is the same car and you can see the edge of the passanger side dash panel.I believe you will have to take out the center console as shown here (start with the two screws in side the console box and move on from there). Then you can access the upper center console panels and remove those, then you can get to the screws for the panel around the glove box, and once you remove that, you should be able to unscrew the hinges of the glovebox door and take a look at that latch. If you don"t want to go through all of this bullshit, then go with cosmicbutthairs" sugestion
if your car is still under warranty the dealer have to replace it for no charge. And the warranty will have to be in between 3 years or 36,000 miles you know standar warranty:thumbup:
This car is 5 years old so it"s definitly not covered by the bumper-to-bumper waranty that is 3years or 36,000 miles, which ever comes first.
Thanks for taking down that stupid post from before, Chris. :disappoin Thanks also for that picture, but it really doesn"t show me what I need to see. I"m sure I don"t need to take apart the center console to remove the glovebox. What I really need is a picture of the actual latch.Could someone post a picture of the actual glovebox latch, please?
Yeah I know that pic didn"t show the latch. But I though you did need to take out the center dash bits because there is a flange (I thought) on the left side of the dash piece around the glovebox which is under the center dash piece. I am not clear about what you managed to get off and why you couldn"t get at the latch. I would post a pic of my own latch but I don"t have a dig. cam.I"ll try and remember to look at mine at least and check my Haynes to see if I can give you more info or scan a pic from haynes....
Shit man, I"ve been crazy busy and I forgot about this. I have been moving and my manual is still at my old place. I am going there after work and before school tonight, so I will try and remmeber to check it out for you! Peace
