Glovebox fuse box

Post by Davevx » Mon Jan 11, 2021 1:52 pm

I’ve read the how to release the glovebox to get to these fuses

(Think fuse 40 cigarette lighter may have blown)

How on earth do you release the arm on the glove box on the RH side. What a pain!

You should just be able to flick it off with your finger. It needs a little force. You could also lever it off with a long screwdriver. It's really easy after you've done it for the first time.

I'll take a few pics in the morning if it helps.

Would be good if you could.

Skoda garage said they would have a look

But wanted it for the day as a warranty job and loan car.

I declined due to the current covid advice. Not really essential. So if I can get that blooming bit off it would help.

Defo not a garage job unless there's something broken. Admittedly those Skoda pics aren't 100% clear, but it's REALLY easy once you've done it.

Can you see that lever in the first picture you posted? If you place your finger over the thick part of the lever, almost exactly where the 2 is on that diagram, and push the lever down towards the floor, you'll hear it snap open. Once it's released ( freed ), then just pull the lever away from the glovebox and that's it.

Just do the opposite to refit. Is slightly harder to align the end of the lever with the slot in the glove box, but once you feel the lever slot in, then just pull up on the plastic lever until it snaps into place.

The first time I did it, it wasn't the lever that caught me out, it was the 2nd diagram. I was trying to push and pull the glovebox itself to no avail. It was only after a few swear words I got out the torch and had a look inside. It's the trim around the glovebox you press, not the glovebox itself. Those pics / instructions are defo not the clearest.

As I say, just push the lever away from you with a finger or... a gentle push with the handle of a hammer works.

Success. You were right releasing the damping arm is easy (when you know to pull it toward you with a cloth around your finger)

The tricky bit as you said also is releasing the two stops either side. I used two knives but the handle ends. With a bit of jiggery pokery the glovebox was released. Fuse 40 (20a) was blown, replaced and working again.

Cheers Jamie

* what I will say is be careful when releasing the stops, it’s very easy to mark/scratch the plastic. I have some trim removal tools that I would use next time.
