Glove box pull

PostPost by: h20hamelan » Thu Apr 23, 2020 2:55 am

My S4 does not have a handle to open the glove box.
I am contemplating using a thin piece of leather as a pull, and cupboard catch. As it seems original, that it did not have a handle. Probably wont be used often anyway.

Find out where the limits are, and start from there

The original fitment is a push - push latch as used on cupboard doors, loft hatches etc .... no handle required.
Widely available from hardware stores and ebay for just a couple of £'s
Search for Touch Latch ....
