For some reason I cannot get my glove box to lock, I'm using the key hole in the rear console it turns, makes a activating noise but the glove is still unlocked.

Am I doing something wrong?

The key in the rear center arm rest (2nd cup holder area) locks the front center arm rest compartment and the trunk. It does not lock the glovebox.

I am having an issue unlocking the center console... I've tried to unlock it from the valet/hotel key slot in the rear console but I can't seem to figure out how to open it. Thoughts?

Re: 2007 BMW 6 Series Glovebox jammed

I have noticed with my 6 that the centre console some time can jam in the heat. There are 2 levers. One is to raise the console and the other is to open it. More than this I don't know. Good luck
