    Ah, the dreaded convertible glove box lock. Yes I can get in and out with the key, but I want to fix it properly. I have searched extensively and cannot seem to find a replacement for the motor that actuates the gear to lock the glove box. Yes, I have tested fuses, car running, unlocked...

    Anyone know where the fourth wire in the back (circled and underlined) should live? I'm good on the first three, but I don't remember where the heck the fourth one came from.

    2011 5 Series... for the life of me I can't figure out how the glove box even works, let alone how to fix it. Couldn't find any videos on YouTube, hoping someone here can help me out. I opened it up this evening and now it won't close... any ideas are appreciated. Thanks.

    My 06 Vert has a defective glove box lock. I got it opened using a screwdriver and pushing the latch open. That was easy. After testing the mechanism, I noticed the electric actuator was shot and bought a brand new (inner) unit. I just can't figure out how it all works. I pair the 2 pieces...

    So you probably get a lot of questions about the fuse box and people with missing diagrams(I have mine in the glove box) but I was wondering about the middle row of fuses. I understand that the fuses that are vertical in rows 1 and 2 correspond with the diagram numbered fuses but what about the...

    Can anyone help please...the glove box won't open, there's no tension in the button. Is there any non-destructive way to release the catch? Below and to the rear of the box there is trim with gaps, and I wonder if it's feasible to get through there to find the bowden cable?

    I went through different threads but I could not find a solution to my problem. Hopefully one of you would know the solution. In my 2008 335i Convertible, Glove Box can't be opened. I tried it with key also, but it wouldn't open. The key can move easily in the lock. I almost spent 30 minutes...

    I have a write-up I'd like to do on how I fixed my glove box flashlight in my '94 530i by using parts from a newer and easily obtainable BMW glove box flashlight. First I wanted to see if this picture I am attaching is attaching and displaying correctly before I get into this. But the bottom...
