I am looking for a beige glove compartment door for a 2004 NBC. I checked with the dealer and they said I couldn't just get the handle that it was all one piece, and they quoted me $300+ for the part. So, I'm looking for a used one that is is good condition. If anyone is parting out and has one, please PM me.

Thanks!

Numerous ones on eBay running right now, check the last couple posts in this thread. These are not year specific. the correct color name for yours is cream or or I believe properly, creme, although I have seen this color refered to as beige and tan also. Three colors, black, flannel gray, and creme. Expect to pay $90 -$135 depending on condition, plus shipping. Don't pay more, They are always available on eBay.

I have the DIY for swapping the lock somewhere, I'll see if I can find it and put it up in a few minutes.

Thanks!

They are going to be called beige, tan, or cream/creme.The correct color is cream/creme. All the same. Only three colors, grey, cream, and black. Black seems to be the hardest to find and the most expensive, but plan on spending $90-$135 + shipping. Haven't seen one in a week or two, but haven't really been looking. I'd bet though there are one or two there right now.

Here's just the door, think this will fit, assume yours is a LHD vehicle (correct for this one, even though it's in GB)

This is the same p/n and correct fitment for all years according to ECS Tuning for $198, so why would you not buy this one from GB?

The replacement door should be around $150 for any color from the dealer.
Maybe a little low now, a year ago maybe. The cream above on eBay from GB is new at abt $95 US shipped. Great deal!
