I was attempting to open the glove box in my '04 convertible when the one side of the handle lifed out. Eventually my "fiddling" resulted in the entire handle coming out.

Well that says it all, Any help on how to re-install this would be appreciated.

Hope you all had a nice Christmas.

glove box

Well our glove box handle broke off about 6 months ago. I fixed it, but it took some fiddling.

I glued a new plastic tab onto the handle with resin solvent bond ("melts" the plastic together) and drilled a hole in the side of the door to allow a long 1/16" wire to act as a new pivot. Insert wire with handle in position and leave a bit of wire sticking out on ends. Currently works very well and I didn't buy a new glove box door. Cant tell it's been repaired.

or buy a new glove box door for $100...
