Default Glove box lid


The glove box lid on my D4 doesn't have a damped action when opened. I'm not sure if it should have and has merely become inoperative or none at all.

I thought I'd ask before I start mauling about under the facia.

Cheers Steve

There is a damper so either the damper (#7) is broken or the hinge pin (#8) has become detached. Part numbers are as follows:

Don't know what year your car is, so provided both versions of part #7
#7 8E2880324 up to 19/05/2014 36
#7 4H2880324 after 19/05/2014 32
#8 8E0880802 1.20

The first minute of the following video will show you how to remove the glovebox: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHiULh5xKAg
