Broken glovebox - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC/Other - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content


Recommended Posts

Can anybody help, I was playing with my ipod with my glovebox open as my mum got in my car. She managed to put her foot in the glovebox and broke the string that holds it in place (right hand side). Should be easy to but I can't see where it is supposed to attach inside the dash. Could somebody take a pic of their own glovebox cord and post it in this thread as I have had enough of my glovebox spilling it's contents into the footwell whenever the open button is pressed!

Thanks,

Chris.

Even if it hadn't broken I doubt she would have fitted in there.

Marvin,

You are talking about Evora glovebox aren't you? It is just under your Avatar you list Exige S as your car and I don't remember your name posting in Evora section before. Not that there is anything wrong with that though! Also from memory (as stuck offshore at the mo) the shock cord attachment of the Evora glovebox was only on the initial mule cars and then changed to some sort of slightly damped arrangement from the early cars. Still poor, but better so at least it doesn't MT contents on the floor every time. dry.gif I've never studied it however so may well be some cord in there as well and I'm talking bollocks. unsure.gif

Anyway I'm told Elises and Exiges were hard cars without any namby pamby concessions to luxury like cupholders or storage like us Evora drivers! Are they getting softer? Heh heh. rofl.gif

Elise has a cup holder. Nasty little bugger too, the rail it slides on is sharp as a knife which isn't good when you've finished your latte and push it back under the dash!

Marvin, sorry for making assumptions. We all know what they are don't we. censored.gif Heh heh. Now I'd like to help you out but as I am about 6,000 miles from my car for another 4 weeks or so I will have to leave this up to one of the others to resolve. I am now also interested in finding out if we have cord as I thought it had been replaced. I still am struggling to picture the moment though of your Mum with her foot stuck in the glovebox. Must be a spritely old bird! unworthy.gif

Cummon the rest of you, help the man. I'm now intrigued about this cord!!!!

Matt, that's more like it. That was the hard core that I had heard about and thought I'd seen. thumbup.gif

Bibs, I think I know what you are talking about from seeing one in the showroom although I didn't know that was what it was. An alloy ring sticking out the bottom of the dash looking like a complete after thought with a bit of leather under it I assume. hrhr.gif

Glove box cord very hard to find and photo hope this helps. Its on the righthand side comes through the dash bulkhead and joins onto the box on at the right hand outside.

Thanks Andrew.

I can find the hole in the bulkhead that the cord goes through, now to find out what it is supposed to be attatched to and how.

Can't make it out from the pic.

Why is nothing easy!?

Hi Lot my daughter has done the same bloody thing to my glove box last night. there seems to be a little wheel behind the glove box wondering if this crappy pease of string attaches to that? did you manage to fix yours.

You also have to be careful when putting a bottle of water in the holder as the switch for the central locking is behind the gear lever and invariably gets knocked.

Yes central locking AND a cup holder in an Elise, whatever next!
