Hello everyone, I am a new owner of a 1998 318i and I am currently in the process of restoring the broken pieces. This one has baffled me so far. I found a post for a user asking a similar question, but I saw no sure answer on its success. My problem is my glove box assembly is broken (door and box area.) I have been fortunate to find a replacement from a salvage yard for $20, without the front leather cover on the door. I need to find a way to remove the cover off my door causing no damgae, in addition to the removal I need to add it to the replacement piece. I see that some have suggested epoxy, but again with no finishing results. If anyone has any better ideas please suggest them. Thank you and I will frequent this site in the future for all of my questions.
Fortunately I have gained valuable experience in glove box removal, thanks to the salvage yard letting me pull my part. The part that is missing from my replacement is the leather(?) piece that goes on the door. From what I see on the door itself, mine and the replacement, there are no screws or anything that holds it on. It looks as if there is some type of adhesive holding the piece on, however the dealer had no idea what it was or how it worked.
Wow, this is an awesome breakdown! Piece number 1 is the part that has the leather(?) glued to the actual door. The replacement I have does not have that leather(?) piece on the door itself. The more I look at the leather(?) piece it seems more and more difficult to remove and place on the new part. Where does this Etk software come from?
