The Glove Compartment Won't Open

This car has had many broken pieces, inside the car door. First the driver's door had a broken piece of plastic, that needed to be replaced. After getting it fixed, another plastic piece broken, inside that same door. It happened three times, to the same car door! Now, the glove compartment won't open. From the outside, it appears to be just fine. We tried using the key, with no positive results. Jay had to buy a used glove compartment, to replace the one that's broken. He couldn't purchase just the plastic part, without paying an atrocious price for a brand new piece. On Friday, I have an appointment to get this glove compartment replaced. Ridiculous? Yes, it certainly is My Lot Family! Photo: Mine

Even owners of antique cars have never experienced this problem.

We had an antique car and we never had a ridiculous problem like this one. I hope it will not be too expensive.

@kobesbuddy The car of my husband was strong and sturdy too. He sold the car to a collector, we did no use it anymore.

It cost us $50 for a used glove compartment and $50 to install it. With new parts, it would have been 3X as much.

That is such a nuisance and needless trouble to get them fixed. Hope it is back in good condition soon.

Today, we bought a used glove compartment. The entire thing will be replaced tomorrow. A new one would cost a small fortune!

Yes, because many cars aren't built durable, as they use to be.

The parts inside where we can't see them, are made out of cheap plastic. Cars use to be built sturdy and strong.
