How to remove glove box latch lock?

Post by w30bob » Thu Jun 15, 2017 6:32 am

Hi Guys,

My A1 came with a lockable button latch on the glove box, but no key. A good yank gets the door opened, but I want it functional. It appears new, but I don't see any number stamped on it to identify what key it used. So I'd like to take it apart and remove the tumbler so I can still us it (until I pony up for another one with a key).

I don't see an easy way to disassemble......but it must come apart. Anybody done this before?

thanks,
bob

Please disregard........I found the key in the glovebox. It had slid up against the dash panel inside the glove box. It'said an H700 key.

Thanks,
Bob
