Glove Box problems

Hey everyone,

I just purchased a 90 525i the other day, and the glove box does not close. the latch is about one inch short of making the supposed clasp for the latch. it looks like that there is a piece missing cause the glove box lines up with the trim and could not be raised up. Is this a common problem with these cars? If so, could someone help me in the direction i should go about fixing it.

Thanks

Try matching color "DUCT TAPE" On the serious note. Try contacting a junk yard to see if they have a exact clasp for the latch and replace it. Its probably attached by two screws. If that doesn't work you can always use my first suggestion. Good Luck.

Ya, I already tried the duct tape method, just kidding. I perused the junk yard today and couldn't find a donor car. I am gonna try another tomorrow
