Glove Box Door Warped

Postby kevin31157 » Fri 16.06.2017, 15:40

GLove box.
Hi everyone AGAIN lol.
The door to my glovebox has warped somewhat and although it shuts ok you cant help but notice the gap around box and the door which i think looks terrible. Is this a common thing in the M100s and is it possible to get a decent one with key somewhere these days.
Thanks.

Are you sure its warped as the outside is just a shell which can come unglued from the rest of it. Pulling it apart enough to re-glue it sorted it for me.

To be fair I panicked and swam straight for the surface.

They've never been a good fit.

Even when you sort it out it will soon wander when you open it, and when you want to get behind it for some reason, it will be back to square one.....or not, as the case may be.

Ok thanks guys. I`ll take it apart and see if i can get it flat again with gluing it. Shame they`ve never been a good fit, it ruins the look of the dash when it sticks out from being flush.
thanks again.
