Re: Glove Box can't open?
I got a new glove box/trunk lock/keys. I have the "late" 67 tail panel so my lock set for trunk is for 68, large key.
Installed both but the glove box lid does not easily (as it did with old lock) open.
Is there supposed to be some form of spring that pushes it out some?
I do have a switch upper left in the box that my guess is for a glove box light which it does not have that is like a door jam type switch with a light spring button if that doubles as the open assist..
I basically have to push button then use my fingers from other hand to pry/pull the door open
Should the door "pop" open on its own once key lock is pushed in?
I don't see how to adjust, if you can, the top plate the lock catches on.
FWIW in my copy of "assembly manual" page 37 ( not 41-42) shows glove box detail but I am not seeing anything that would act as a "spring" to assist in its opening...other than gravity.
My Assembly Manual is a repop re-print and has no Glossary so basically need to thumb through pages until you see WTF you are looking for
Chassis Service Manual has no interior 411
