    Hi guys

    Does anyone else have a problem with their glovebox lid alignment with the dash when closed.

    It sounds silly, but its almost like mine is twisted as its a neat fit on the left, but the right has a huge gap between the lid and the dashboard.

    Just wondered if it was a common problem or just a one off on mine?

    Thanks
    Andy

    When you open the glove box there are 2 rubber stoppers near the edge on the door. These can be turned and adjust in and out, mine wasnt quite right, but its better now, after a small tweek.

    I had this on my FR - it was caused my my sat nav cradle which was in the glovebox stopping the lid closing properly - this caused the lid to twist slightly and not want to close straight even when the cradle was out

    We looked at the Ibiza when it first came out in 2002 and the glovebox lid was a crap fit and needed a hefty push to get it to close. We bought a Mini Cooper instead.

    When we traded the Mini in for our FR in 2005, there was no improvement in the glovebox lid in those 3 years. It would seem there still hasn't been an improvement. Typical.

    isn't the lid only held in place by one latch? But i have the same symptons twisted and really a pain to close without a hefty slam.

    Tbh i dont use the glove box much but i can see how it could be annoying. Be careful wehn faffing around with your dash mind I've found the plastic very VERY easy to mark much to my disapointment on day 2 of owning the car and sratching my dash :'(

    My glovebox only closes with a decent slam, a gentle close and it just drops open a few seconds later.
