Yea I know another dumb question sorry
I've had this problem since I owned the car. It's always been one of those I'll get to it annoyances. There should be something that stops the glove box door from completely opening to the point it dumps everything on the floor. I can't tell if something is broken or missing. Anybody have an idea? Pictures would be helpful.
I wasn't sure myself so just looked at my car and there is a "Stop" built into the Black Plastic (behind the Gray Panel) that the Door/Drawer assembly butts up against when open. The Door itself has a little rubber bumper about 2/3 the was across that hits this little stop.
Kinda hard to describe but I got another car I'm parting and the Gray panels are all removed, but the Black Plastic behind that is still there. If you look at the pic, just above the Orange Wire (oops - I think it's a vacuum hose), you will see what looks like a Black "V" coming down into the Glove box area. It's this little piece of plastic that the Glove Box door butts up against.
EDIT - The Pic is posted upside down for some reason. But the Passenger side door is removed (plastic there) but you can kinda see the A/C vent location for orientation.
