Glovebox Rattle - How to gain access to rear

Post by A18041967 » Wed Jul 10, 2019 1:01 pm

I have a very annoying rattle that's coming from behind the glovebox and I'm hoping there's any easy way to release the glovebox to gain access to the rear. I expecting to find a simple fix and some component just needs securing instead of having to return it to a dealer to get it resolved.

Yes, it's in the manual as it gives you access to the fuse box behind the glove box. Its not the easiest 'easy access' in the World as its fiddly on your own.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

''
Fig. 363 Storage compartment on the front passenger side

Remove the ignition key, turn off the lights and all electrical consumers.
Open the storage compartment on the front passenger side.
Unlock the brake rod in the direction of arrow 1 and remove in the direction of arrow 2 Fig. 363.
Unlock the stop pad A in the direction of arrow 3 and the compartment folds down in the direction of arrow 4 .

Fold back the storage compartment
Raise the tray in the opposite direction of arrow 4 .
Overcome resistance of stop pad A .
Insert the brake rod against the direction of arrow 2 and lock against the direction of arrow 1 .
The compartment closes (increased force is required to close it) until it clicks into place

Or in simple language......
Get a flat thin bladed dinner knife (the old fashioned sort with an ivory handle, or similar.
Open the glove box to its full extent, locate the slow closing arm and pop it off its peg, then insert the knife between the lugs on the right side, thereby releasing it .
Hold the knife while you push the identical lugs apart on the left side (or use another similar knife.)
Reversal is simple, push the lid closed until it clicks on both lugs and then re-attach the slow close 'leg,' be aware that the hole is keyhole shape.

I would use the dealer , it shouldn’t be rattling and you don’t want to scratch or break anything

I have sensitive hearing so I can hear any little sound which doesn't seem normal......some people just don't hear so well or doesn't notice...
