2006 M-Rattling Glovebox-How to adjust door??

Postby goM35 » Tue May 25, 2010 7:31 am

Over the past couple of months the glovebox has developed a persistent rattle. I've emptied the box and it still rattles. However when I hold my hand on the door and press it to the dashboard, the rattles disappear.

As I imagine there is a way to adjust the lock on the box to solve my little issue, soliciting advice as to how to do so??

Thanks in advance for all the replies.

I would look under the actual box. When I had a rattle in my G's box, it was caused by a flat metal piece located inside and under the glove. (I put my hand in the glove and pushed down on the floor, it had some give). It was a little loose, and every time it flexed or bent, it would make the rattle noise. I added some insulation type between it and anything that was loose and it took care of the rattle.

The felt tape they put on the inside of the glovebox door didn't work on mine, 2 or 3 times. What did work is just to wrap a bit of tape around the horizontal part of the "U" on the door to keep it from actually rattling while it's inside the catch. It took a bit of trial and error to get it to smoothly open and close, but a year later and it still works.
