View Full Version : looking for an interior part.

08-31-2009, 12:45 AM
I cant seem to fint the metal hook that the glove box latches to.
I dont even remember removing it from the dash panel. so i'm not sure what it looks like. if anybody could post me pic that would be great.
It must have gotten lost in the interior swap. I think it holds the glove box light socket in place too.

My cardboard wedges only hold it closed for so long, till i hit the bumpy streets in town, and there are alot around here.

Try checking out junkyards?

Not many of these cars left around here. Scrap yards usually crush them.

There is a hook which screws onto a bracket which holds the light and bolts to a steel beam
Which part do you need?

09-18-2009, 02:30 AM
The light is hanging free also. so i think i need the whole thing. Any pics? somehow it was removed from the steel support.

I'll see if I can find something........

That would be awesome! Its really annoying having the glove box hang open all the time.

Are they the same from 4th and 5th gens. But that is the part i need. I found the part number on toyodiy.com forget what the # is. I think mine holds the glove box light in also.

i had the clove box off of mine so i just took a few pics of it mine holds the light to i just have it hanging, i dont know if they are the same or not but they should be pretty close i want to go back to get a few things for myself around the 6th or the 7th if you want pics of the 4th gen latch

They are different from Gen4 to Gen5. Gen4 houses the glovebox lamp, like you said.

Just go to your local junkyard, there's lots there.

None in the junkyards around me. I've searched and asked them to call my shop if any come in. They had one a couple of years ago but it was a pile someone just dropped it off to them they crushed right away. I'd have to drive to the city to find a yard with one. i was hoping that someone on here would have a parts car sitting around.
