    Noisy glovebox

    Anyone have any ideas how to shut this thing up? It only happens when I'm moving. Being that it's "winter", the windows are MOSTLY up..... and it's irritating the piss outta me. It's loose it seems, how do I tighten it up ?

    wrap electrical tape around the hook thingy that the latch of the glove box latches on to. Should quiet it down. At this point my wagon has tape on all four doors, hatch, and glovebox

    Well that didn't work. I'm thinking I need to put some stuff in there to keep the door weight "down". I'll try this and get back.

    Remove the glovebox and insulate it with foam tape used on windows in winter if you can find something thin enough, or felt strips. Do the same on the box door.
