How do you remove the glove box or just lids?
« on: March 18, 2017, 12:30:12 PM »
Hi guys, had a quick look on here but can't find any info on how to remove an E70 glove box or just the lids?, the rubber trim is lifting on the lids and ideally I was going to try and remove the complete box or just the lids so I can re-glue them.

Thanks in advance.

I was going to suggest Realom.com
Though having looked at the picture, as per link, I'm none the wiser
Realoem normally gives a useful general breakdown....

Do you mean just the upper lid? If so, there's a panel on the inside of the lid that just pops out with very little pressure, revealing 5 or 6 screws. Undo all of these and the upper lid can be removed by wiggled it gently while pulling it towards you.

I re-glued my lid by spreading contact adhesive into the gaps and then vacuum bagging it (using a kitchen vacuum sealer). Unfortunately it started lifting again - I think I need to do the job properly by peeling the rubber cover off completely to allow me to spread the adhesive properly before bagging it.
