Glove box

I recently mentioned I had been and still am relatively sort of still am looking [unsuccessfully] on and off  for a glove box..........

So after a bit when it was really becoming a right PITA to open I dicovered the locking tab was broken [hence looking for replacement] .........

I Gingerly split open the top with a heafty lock knife I've had for years and a screw driver to have a skeck inside.............
[I kinda marked the start edge up a bit as I had nothing to loose] ... It was broken and I thought a replacement would easily be found .........

Fast forward about 6 months later and on and off searches ................
It would appear the scarcity or so I'm told is the problem of rough commecial treatment, sh** wheelie bin brittle plastics and age probably ...................


I got the complete cover/lid we'll call it off the Glovebox section and although first thought was plastic welded ........
I think most of it is some kind of industrial glue ...........

I'm in a sort of check out and repair mode

This is what glovebox gubbins without cover/lid looks like

This is is the top cover/lid and you can see broken off lock pin above the white slide retainer thingy opening part

It's a fairly simple operating slider to moving lock pins.........

Apart from some Super glue or a Hot glue gun ...........
Just find a way to strengthen lock pin repair and maybe improve/increase opening movement/operation for that side ..........
Which was original PITA problem..........
As it wasn't realeasing fully...............

And stick it all back together.............
