    Re: type glove box handle broke off in search link's

    I have a problem with my 89' BMW 525i glove compartment but in my situation the anti-thief system doesn't let me open glove compartment and truck with key. I disconnected the battery then reconnected it and key still can't open them up. It's driving me crazy. Any suggestion?I need help! 89' BMW 525i has a crazy operating system that controls windshield wipers,windows and seat. When one choose to work they all do at the same time but when one doesn't they all don't. I think it may be a relay or sensor connected to their individual electrical system. What can I do?

    Anyway, I was about to say that mine broke off and I can still get into it easy enough by pushing the hook-looking piece sticking down behind where the handle was to the right. You might want to use your other hand to support the glove box weight and it will be easier to move that latch.

    This problem comes up often enough that there should be some fairly recent discussions about it. 8-) Q

    Broken Glove Compartment Opener

    The pull handle of the glove compartment came off and now I cannot open the compartment door. Does anyone know how to fix it? Or at least show me how to open it so I can get to the items inside? It's kind of urgent since my registration document is inside. Thanks!
