Glove compartment door

Recommended Posts

I loozed at my 09 mkx and there doesn't appear to be any adjustment.

I would suggest spraying the lock mechanism with silicon spray. The locking mechanism may be binding, not allowing the lock to fully engage.


Alternatively you can buy a new latch ($20 ebay) or complete glove box off ebay ($50 ebay, used).

I just had a rattling problem with mine. You can adjust the door by slightly and carefully bending the metal bracket that the lock clamps onto. Go easy and in small steps.

If the lock grabs onto the metal bracket and it still opens it's probably the lock that needs to be replaced. You should try to lubricate the lock like enigma said before replacing it.
