Arrrrgh,......I went to open my glovebox the other day, and the button(s)/latch assembly disintegrated in my fingers!

Color unimportant, so if you have one laying around, please let me know and hopefully we can make a deal.

The more I work on the interior in Ms Swan, the more little bits-and-pieces I find that just turn to dust when I handle them. 30+ years of California Sunshine have NOT been kind to the car. I'm amazed that the seats are still really nice.


....knock wood.....

Thanks!

I think I have a blue one somewhere at my storage spot. I'm in Chicago tho, if you don't find anything local let me know and I'll see what I can dig up.

Thanks, but I doubt if I'll find something much closer. Back in SoCal I might be able to, but out here in the mountains, uh.....don't think so.

No hurry, but if you dig one out, I'll take it.

Thanks, Tazmo.

I'll take anything. The OEM latch fell apart to the point I can't even glue it back together.

Glad you got it solved drjim I thought rustbucket came through since I didn't see any other post on this.
It's one of those things I needed, and the first solid offer I had was accepted.

One of these days I'll make an actual list of bits I need (and there's LOTS of them) so I can start finding them.

Happened to come across 1 of these a few days before I saw this post.

Then couldn't find that particular one when I went to package it...... I thought NP .... I'll just pull another one fr 1 of the Glove box doors I already have Off Car....

In trying to take the Key Cylinder off.... THAT broke ....

OKaaaay... I thought I'll just pull one fr one of my cars until I can find the original 1 ...

Then (even though I was being extremely careful) pulled a (3rd) one fr 1 of my cars & THAT BROKE TOO !!!

Sorry DrJim ... will be refunding Ur $$ ..... as my lesson learned fr this is (unless ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY) don't ever try & pull the lock cylinders any more...

So I now have to try & find at least the original one... & FIX MY CARS NOW.... Arrrrggghhhh

So if someone wants to sell him one with the cylinder still in it... or can sucessfully get the Cylinder off.... go for it...

Ahhhh....the joys of owning a 35 year old car!

Mine just fell apart in my fingers, and it didn't look bad. Some of the parts on the car that were directly exposed to the sun through the glass fell apart all on their own, but the latch waited for me to use it.

Sorry it didn't work out for us, and I'm open to multiple offers.....
