    Glovebox won't open.

    I can't recall. was this a a common problem? is there an easy fix?
    Is it a trip to the dealer?

    My registration is inside and I would be better served if I could retrieve it.

    Jiggling worked for me

    When mine went on the blink, I was desperate to get some documents out that were needed the next day and I had plenty of time. I found it was possible to open it by carefully pulling the latch about half way down and at the same time push up on the bottom of the glove box door. It took a fair bit of jiggling over about half an hour to get the right feel for it but it finally opened. Give it a try.

    Yeap, this is the mother of common problems (m)

    Put the key in the (glove box) lock turn it and then pull gentry on the glove box handle. That's worked for me every time.

    My car has been to the dealer three times for this fix and it has only 3,200 miles.

    Re: Glovebox won't open.

    I just had mine in for the same problem, fifth replacement. This time, the area service rep recommended replacing the "receiver" as well as the latch, which seems to have fixed the problem for now. Make a point of having this documented on your record, as it is likely to come up again after warranty.
