My glovebox sprung open for the umpteenth time the other day, while I was on my way to a club meeting. I was in a rush so slammed it shut, and broke the last tiny bit of whatever it was intended to keep the door from swinging open.

I pulled the plate out of the top, and it's just flimsy plastic with a couple of mounting slots and really nothing else.

I have no idea what is even broken off or how it should look in order to fabricate a replacement (I can't find any replacement part anywhere at all).

Would anyone have a photo or spec of how this retaining plate/latch thingy should look? Of course, should anyone have a spare, I'd be only too happy to buy it, but that seems foolishly optimistic at this point.

Much obliged...

Exact same thing has happened to mine.  I reversed the flimsy plastic latching plate, and there was enough of a return lip to latch and hold the glovebox lid...but only just, but the glovebox doesn't sit quite right...too low.

It's my intention to fabricate a new latching plate, when it really bug's me.
