Glovebox inner - a conundrum for that Swindon bloke?


Recommended Posts

Part no. A082V7835K.  Many moons ago, Bibs gave me this when I needed one for my 1989 carb turbo.  However, here was no way it was going in there!  It appeared entirely the wrong shape.  I consigned it to a dusty corner and forgot about it.  Found it again the other day and did a bit of nosing around, but I'm none the wiser as info seems to conflict.

So, what does this fit?

Won't be the last time your seen in a darkened after hours car park with something in your hand

I’m gonna get fried knackers. The smell was dreadful and I managed to get red paint on the oven racks. She had to clean the oven out afterwards.

Sod off, you saw how well the last one went.  Looks like a Scotsman will win.

Love to, but I don't think it does!  Confused.com

But Steve's site also says it fits a Stevens.  Maybe I was having a bad day (it was several years ago and I'm having a stem cell moment), but as I recall there was no way that was going into mine.  I'd ask for an insitu photo, but where would I find a bonkers S3 owner at this hour?

I had the glovebox inner out of mine when I did the interior refurb and it didn't look like that. 

There is no front 'bar' (the part with the 2 rectangular holes) and at the back there was a narrow top panel. Pretty sure it's not from a Stevens then...

Not worth starting anything now...🍺

Nope, this bit ain't going in there, unless you insert it with a sledgehammer.

Yeah got a hammer just like that. Anti roll bar bushes needed one.

Only here once

Yeah, yeah, I've already been there!  So, early Stevens?  G cars?  It's all rather ambiguous.  Still won't accept it until I see it wiv me own eyes.

I getcha. The part numbers for the LHD and RHD drive glovebox inners are different in the official parts manual, but this one is to be found in several places and they  point to the pre-'88 Turbo:

But then I have found a link to SJ and it also features in their 1988 to 1992 price list?

Ah, it is in the '88 to '92 Lotus parts manual (as a J suffix, presumably the K is a detail change)?

I wonder why it wouldn't go in yours then? Perhaps it has the wrong part number on it. Let me check all the models and pics...

I tempted fate...now my Esprit V8 IS in bits...(sob)

You must have stayed in the highest of quality places Barry. But yes from an S3, oh and I don't need it so feel free.

Sparky, you are an absolute star, regardless what that old codger who used to own a V8 said about you earlier.

That guy?  No taste.  So, how do we effect the transfer?  Some dodgy car park in Leeds?

Yep, the guy who has just posted a pic of some rotted out rear bulkhead no sign of woodworm yet, but then he maybe hasn't sat in it long enough yet to infest the cabin. Get a price for sticking it in a jiffy bag or something similar and let me know the postage. If you have one, pm me with Paypal details and I will get you paid pronto.
